Special Events, Drives and Programs
At St. Vincent de Paul we want every family’s holiday celebration to include a nourishing meal and at least one gift for children to unwrap. For many of the people who live in our housing, however, it’s a struggle to pay rent every month. A new coat, toy, or set of baking pans may seem like a luxury that’s out of reach.
To help ensure all our residents have a happy holiday, St. Vincent de Paul conducts the Holiday Joy fundraising and sponsorship drive. Individuals and community groups sponsor families by providing gifts for each member of the family. This program emphasizes the essentials: money for rent and utilities, warm clothing, and necessary household items. We also have some requests from children for special items that would help make their holiday bright.
This is a great way to give back during the season of giving. If your family, work team, service club or other group is interested in a most festive and greatly appreciated project, we can use your help.
Sponsor a family, veteran or single adult. $30 will ensure your neighbor in need gets a bit of the JOY this holiday season!
In our work in real estate development, renovation and maintenance, and service provision, St. Vincent de Paul periodically contracts with outside vendors in our community.
