Does anyone have or take part in a St. Vincent de Paul Society group at your church?

Feeding the hungry — giving drink to the thirsty

Our St. Vincent de Paul Society gives money to help people in trouble out with a bill. There was a time in my life where I received money for medication from them. A copy of proof of residence — like a bill or rental agreement, social security card, driver’s license must all be taken to them when applying for assistance.

Our local St. Vincent de Paul Society runs two thrift stores here as well as handing out food to the needy on certain days.

We have the Second Sunday set aside as a food collection Sunday and a St. Vincent de Paul Society van is available for loading it up.

On the fifth Sundays — which happen two or three times a year — we have a second collection for St. Vincent de Paul Society.

At this time — all the other churches (local vincinity) are out of money and my church still has money to assist those in need — and it’s not even the 15th of the month yet!
