St. Vincent de Paul’s conference volunteers visit the homes of people who ask for our help, and they partner with St. Vinnie’s stores to provide necessities. They’re amazing folks! Join them June 11 at St. Catherine of Siena for a rejuvenating retreat with Eugene author Mary Sharon Moore. It's free and in a lovely setting in Veneta. Bring a friend.
A paella feast and auction set for June 24 will help fund a program critical to getting homeless and at-risk children prepared for and enthused about starting school. Will your business or organization help by sponsoring? Can you provide an in-kind donation for the silent auction? And what is paella anyway?
