Holiday Joy

giftsHelp Bring Joy to a low-income household

At St. Vincent de Paul we want every familiy's holiday celebration to include a nourishing meal and at least one gift for children to unwrap. However, for many of the people who live in our housing, 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 sponsors the Holiday Joy program. 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 sponsoring one or more families, please contact call 541.687.5820 and ask for Holiday Joy. If you simply love to wrap gifts, we can use your help. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator Katie Lively at 541.321.5902 or send Katie an email.
