An Oakland Tribune story about volunteer opportunities at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul quoted Molleen Dupree, assistant director for residential service learning at Saint Mary's College.
Dupree said she regularly sends her student groups to the society.
"We choose to work with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul for the direct contact with the people," said Dupree. "I think (students) get a good balance of feeling that they've accomplished something by serving some meals and getting to know some people they wouldn't have otherwise gotten to know."
