The Society of St. Vincent dePaul (SSVP) are inspired by the Gospel to help needy families by providing food and furniture according to the resources available through donations. They also prevent utility cut-offs and evictions by helping those in dire circumstances to pay part of the utility bills or rent.
Volunteers are needed for a variety of teams:
- Food Bank Team who prepares food hampers Tuesdays
- Furniture Pick Up and Delivery Team who pick-ups and/or delivers donated items to families in need within our community.
- Home Visit Team who makes home visits to families in need within our community.
- Main Distribution Warehouse Team who sorts and packs donations during warehouse hours (Monday to Friday, 10:00AM to 2:00PM).
You can also show your love for our Lord by helping your neighbor who is hungry through food donations. Donations of peanut butter, jams, cheese whiz, mayonnaise, pasta, pasta sauce, canned meats, pork/beans are appreciated and can be placed in the boxes at the entrances to the church. St. Vincent de Paul also accepts furniture and household items.
The number to call for donations is 471-5577.
Please call the parish office if you would like more information regarding the food bank or for information regarding volunteering at the distribution centre.
