Thank you parishioners, Knights of Columbus, Columbiettes, members of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdeP), and everyone else who helped SVdeP provide a Christmas meal for 77 families in the Smyrna-Clayton community. SVdeP Vincentians (members) were able to deliver 62 turkeys, 11 hams, a chicken and 37 food gift cards. Thanks to a grant from WBOC’s “Bless Our Children”, we also gave 68 Walmart gift cards to children in need.
Each year the cost of putting food on the table and paying the bills becomes harder to bear. It is only through the generosity of our parishioners and other benefactors that we can help our neighbors meet these obligations. Our overhead is very low; about 97% of the contributions SVdeP receives go to the clients’ assistance. If you or someone you know in our community needs assistance, please contact SVdeP: 302-264-6630 (cell.)
