St. Vincent de Paul Society Annual Report
2018 was a busy, but rewarding year for SVDP. Through the generosity of the Parish, we were able to reach 576 people in need within the boundaries of the Parish. Members of the Society made 324 visits to the needy & elderly, spent 868 hrs. in service, & drove 3840 miles.
Receiving $3,558 from 5th Sunday collections, $1,447 from the 14 active members at the weekly meetings, & $11,845 in bequests, the Holy Redeemer conference distributed $7,117 in direct cash aid, $1,050 to the Food Bank & other SVDP conferences, & $2,664 value of kind goods & services to the poor in the Parish district.
We were blessed to receive a $5,000 grant from the national SVDP office to be used to help the poor with utility & rent payments in 2019. The year ended on a joyful note, as we delivered the gifts from the Giving Tree to needy families throughout the Parish. As we expand our outreach in the new year, we realize as Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” So, as he commanded, we ask the Lord of the Harvest “to send out workers into his harvest”. Come join us! We meet every Monday at 7pm in the Parish Council Room.
