SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL
In the month of October, the St. Vincent de Paul food box program at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church provided food boxes for 217 households in the Forest Grove, Gales Creek and Gaston communities. These households consisted of 526 adults and 400 children. In these troubled economic times, a record number of people accessed our food box program.
During the next two weeks, November 8th to November 24th Visitation School will be having a food drive for the benefit of St. Vincent de Paul. During Thanksgiving week, Visitation Parish will also be participating in this food drive at weekend Masses and Thanksgiving Day Mass.
Non-perishable food items: Canned tuna, canned meat, fruit juice, canned fruit, rice, beans, pasta, jello, pudding, instant box or canned food mixes, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, and any other non-perishable food items are welcomed.
Non food items: Toilet paper, soaps, shampoo, shaving cream, deodorant or any other hygiene product.
If you prefer to make a cash donation, please make checks payable to St. Vincent de Paul. We look forward to your continued support. Thank you and many blessings for your generosity.
