Privileged to Serve the Poor
For more than 42 years, Florence John-Jules has been feeding the hungry and helping the homeless on the island of St. Croix. John-Jules is an employee of Catholic Charities of the Virgin Islands. Many of her clients come to the Christiansted Soup Kitchen for a meal (she serves approximately 35-40 people five days a week.) But for those who do not or cannot come to the kitchen, John-Jules knows just where to find them. Three time a week, she and her assistant load their truck with 40 hot meals, clean clothing and toiletries and head mid-island.
