St. Vincent De Paul Society

End poverty through systematic change

Kent Gairdner

Provide a range of assistance, including help with food/grocery scrip, rent and utility payments, car repairs, bus tokens, emergency hotel stays, etc.  Coordinate many activities, including the Adopt-A-Family and Giving Tree at Christmas, the weekly collection of Bags in the Basket for Guadalupe Center, a Blanket and Poncho drive in the winter and the collection and assembly of personal hygiene care pack kits for distribution to the homeless in the spring. The Society also sends a truck to the parish periodically to collect donations of used clothing and household items. 

The mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) is to seek and help people in need (the poor, the lonely etc.). SVdP welcomes more volunteers to help respond to the growing needs in our community.
