Patty, finding a community in need, established a biweekly soup kitchen in a Stamford, CT barrio. While the rest of New York complains/gloats about how busy their 9 to 5 keeps them, Patty handles hers and then moonlights as a tireless social worker.

One of the only people I've ever met who can change the mood of a room by merely stepping inside it.

Patty (right) helps turn bulk donations she collects into dinner for the barrio.

Alex, the chef for the evening, prepares the menu.

Food produced en masse, but no attention to detail spared. Humanity.

What can't be donated and made is bought from local merchants.

Bob got out, but is strong enough to return and help.

Signs and flyers would be sufficient notification. Words go further.

Volunteer helps Edward toward a GED. Teach a man to fish, and his mechanical engineer dreams become a little more real.

Bob and the trash.

Volunteers eat when they can.

Come to our charter school or community center and shoot pix of our kids! I love your perspective and will love their smiles, the light coming from their eyes, and their laughter.
