The St. Vincent de Paul Conference of visitation has certainly answered thius call of Our Lord!
Through its programs, the Conference has served the nedds of our neighborhood well:
running a food bank.
providing vouchers for clothing, furniture and other itmes needed to make a house a home and other necessities of life through the SVDP Angel Room.
making and distributing sack lunches for those who don't have a home.
providing bus tickets for local travel.
another program helps people who are facing eviction or electricity cut-off notices
The work of our Vicentians has been admirable, but could only be accomplished due to the generosity of the members of the Visitation Faith Family.
Printed below are the figures reflecting how many of our neighbors were served through these programs in the past year, October 1, 2006 through September 30, 2007.
