Perhaps one of the most disappointing parts of Alex Handy’s job as president of Easton’s Society of St. Vincent de Paul is that his organization is still growing. Each year its customers, those seeking food assistance to feed themselves and their families, goes up, not down.
In fact, according to Alex, this has been the trend line since the region started to feel the impact of the recession in 2009. All of which has dramatically changed the size and scope of the Society’s mission since it opened its doors in 1979. That’s just one reason why their annual dining card campaign is so important this year.
The Spy sat down the Alex last week for a check in and to understand more fully the special needs in our community.
