JULY – Due to the generosity of the three parishes, St. Vincent de Paul was able to serve 446 families by providing food, clothing, furniture, household goods plus utilities assistance. The garden at Assumption provided 476 pounds of beautiful and fresh produce. Remember, St. Vincent’s during the year, also provides books to Helpline, Senior Center, BMAC, and St. Mary’s hospital. We also support the SOS clinic which provides free medical care for those without insurance. Thank you again to our Catholic Family for your help in caring for those in need through us. Remember also, that St. Vincent’s has a thrift store which has a myriad of items to sell. The proceeds from the store go directly into our work helping those in need in our community. MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU.
