Feeding The Hungry: St. Vincent De Paul Society - A Food Bank

At this time of Thanksgiving, won’t you please consider donating foods to the St. Vincent De Paul Society?

Presently, they are feeding upwards of 200 families and over 600 children, weekly. They depend on parishioners like you and I to help stock their food pantry. They are able to do this because of our dedicated volunteers and each of you for your continued generosity.

Foods most in need are turkey stuffing, pasta and pasta sauce, canned fish and canned meats, boxed potatoes, cereals, powdered milk, canned soup, crackers, canned fruits and vegetables.

You may also purchase gift cards at your neighborhood grocery stores in order to help fill this urgent need. Please place your donation(s) in the food baskets at the entrances of the Parish Hall. May God continue to reward you for helping our Parish Community as you provide for his most needy.
