The Warming House in Olean, New York is the nation’s oldest student run soup kitchen. It provides meals six days a week to the neediest in the Olean area who find their way to our tables. It serves more than 12,000 meals annually. Each day volunteers from St. Bonaventure University and the local community assemble and prepare a nutritious meal for our guests. The Warming House is well stocked with food donated by various groups and individuals in the Olean area. So why does the Warming House need bread? We need bread to pay the rent which costs $1500 per month. We’re asking that you consider a small gift to help us continue this tremendous gift to the community. We need a thousand people to donate $1.50 each month to cover that expense. We seek to build relationships with those that we serve by respecting their human dignity and by helping them to restore hope in their lives. Please help us to continue in that work.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7
