Continuing a long tradition of giving back to the community, a group of SCE employees recently volunteered their time to serve dinners at the St. Francis of Assisi Soup Kitchen located within the Catholic Diocese of Scranton, PA. The Kitchen’s mission is reflected on its website: “In the Catholic tradition and the spirit of our patron, St. Francis of Assisi, the hungry are fed in collaboration with volunteers and donors from all faith communities. The Kitchen provides a free, hot, nutritious meal to all our guests everyday of the year. Staff and volunteers strive to be of assistance to others and serve with a spirit of compassion, respect and dignity.” SCE employees Mariah Wheeler, Nate Butler, Bill Bradican and Bruce Morgan, along with company President and chief pot washer Jody Cordaro and his daughter, Isabella, joined in to serve about 150 folks in need of a good meal. “We sometimes forget how well life has treated us,” noted Director of Client Services, Bill Bradican. He continued,
“This opportunity to reach out to people who need a helping hand was not only a sobering reminder of our good fortune but also a great chance to work with our fellow employees outside the workplace. A true win-win experience.”
