With Jesus… let us reach out to those most in need…those who need us to give them a hand, who need us to look at them with love, to share their pain…
Desales Service Works is a project of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales. DSW exists to impact the lives of others and to Live Jesus! We provide opportunities for face-to-face service, and we work to change the lives of those we serve and to expand the mindset of those who serve. All of our efforts seek to improve struggling neighborhoods while recognizing the goodness of these impoverished communities.
Our First Fundraiser in Camden!
Beef and Beer Fundraiser
For the past 15 years DSW has existed to serve the poor and marginalized, first in Philadelphia and most recently in Camden, NJ. Each year we also welcome about five Service Year Volunteers- young adults who give 12 months of their life to live simply in community and solidarity, working at various life giving ministries in the neighborhood.
This summer we’re holding our first fundraiser in Camden- and the proceeds will go to supporting our current Service Year Community in their ministries. Please join us on June 25, 2016 or donate today to help us celebrate their ministry to the residents of Camden!
- June 25, 2016 from 5- 9pm
