Captain's Log 3.30.2020
The world has turned upside down, and people still are hungry, and need to be fed. SDCE is self quarantined.
Carnaval, Kajun's, Arabella's are all shut down publicly, but are still managing to feed folk who need it.
Palm Sunday- April 5th, and Mother's Day- May 10th, we will feed all comers at St Mark's http://www.frenchquarterumc.org/ where we are assisting in broadcasting their weekly service. We are also a conduit for relief boxes from the city. and can deliver to shut ins citywide. We are meeting many wonderful folk as we learn to expand our scope. We helped get fresh veggies from https://www.sproutnolafarm.org to first responders and to 40 families through a network created by Sierra Torres. https://www.facebook.com/sierra.torres.
Yes, we can use help, donations, dry goods, and yes, we all wish we could have Barbara Kelemencky hugs right now, but, we will survive together, and soon maybe we can hold hands, pass a bowl, share a glass. Until then, we are going to do what needs to be done.
SDCE is a 501 (c)7 organization. Donations to our efforts to feed the hungry are not tax deductible.
The Societé des Champs Elysée is a Social Aid and Benevolent Krewe dedicated to the betterment of the neighborhoods along the cross formed by the Elysian Fields and Saint Claude/ Henriette Dellille, and thus, the world.
