St. Vincent de Paul Society
This organization has a special focus on serving the poor and those who are in need. We do that through personal visits to those in need, food and clothing drives, and other charitable endeavors. If You are in need of assistance please call the HelpLine answering machine at 630-338-8270. Leave your name and phone number where you can be reached and someone will return your call within 48 hours.
We always have a need for volunteers so if you would like to serve in some way, please contact Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also very grateful for your continued support of monthly food donations.
On the First Weekend of Every Month, We will be collecting non-perishable food items at both church locations before the Masses. Grocery Store Gift cards are also Welcome!
The easiest and most efficient method is to send your donations using the Parish Give Central electronic system (see pages 2 & 4). You can also put your donation in the new box; see information below. If you need assistance please call 630-338-8270. Your generosity enables us to help many families in need of food assistance.
