Mar/Apr Feinstein Donation Boosts

Wednesday - March 20, 2013

During the months of March and April, all donations we receive will be recorded in detail and reported to the Feinstein Foundation. At the end of the collection period the Feinstein Foundation will proportionally split one million dollars between participating agencies.

This means that every donation during March and April will have added value by increasing the size of the contribution we will receive from the Feinstein Foundation.

Thank you to all of our donors for your generosity and willingness to help others in need!

Christmas Updates

Monday - December 17, 2012

This week we will give a book to each child who receives food from our pantry! The parents are always very grateful for this gift. Thank you all for making it possible.

A student from a local college asked to do community service hours for a class he was taking. As the conversation continued his story came out. Several years ago he was homeless and spent some time in the overnight shelter we work with. He also made use of the services we provide at St. Vincent de Paul Place. He was able to find a job, put a little money together, and reconnect with his children.

Recently, he saw that the company is looking for a person with a higher degree, so he intends to stay in school and qualify for the better job.

This semester he took a social services class so he would have to do community service hours. It is his intention to write a paper on the value of services like St. Vincent de Paul Place.

We all worked a little harder after hearing his story.

On December 18 the Zoning Board gives us a decision on our request to stay at St. Joseph's School.
