The Sovereign Global Advisors team, in the presence of the company President and CEO John Dragotta, volunteered their time to serving at St. Luke's Lutheran Church Soup Kitchen. It was this time last year that the company had the honor to first serve a meal to the homeless and "it's humbling to have the opportunity to do so again," stated Mr. Dragotta. On Thursday, midday, the church transforms its theater space to feed the city's homeless population.
Before the line started to form and the food was served, John Dragotta made a pantry donation. Then, along with the Sovereign team, all hands were on deck. They prepped and served hundreds of hungry New Yorkers that were in need of something as simple as a hot meal. The Soup Kitchen is largely supported by the United Way, bread is supplied by City Harvest, whereas cash gifts and food items are made possible from neighboring businesses on Restaurant Row. A great deal of the success of the soup kitchen is owed directly to the church members, congregational budget, and commitment of volunteers and nearby businesses. From this, it has continued to provide food and clothing to hundreds of people in NYC's homeless population.
According to The Coalition for the homeless, the population of those living in shelters in New York City has reached an all-time high with close to 60,000 people, including more than 23,000 children and 75% being families. This number does not account for the homeless population not admitted into city shelters. St. Luke's Lutheran church accepts volunteers all year round for their soup kitchen and clothing bank.
