2019 Annual "Walk for the Poor"
"And the King will answer them, Truly, I say to you, as
you did for the least of these my brothers,
you did it to me". Matthew 25:40
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul provides help to those who need assistance in our community regardless of religion, ethnicity or social status.
Last year our Conference at Saint Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Bradenton helped over 2,500 individuals and families. But we are forced to turn others away due to a lack of funds.
In 2014 our Conference adopted the program "Walk for the Poor" to help us raise much needed funds. Help us help them by walking with us along the Manatee River front at the "Bradenton Riverfront Park" on Saturday morning March 16th. Registration begins at 8 AM, the Walk starts at 9 AM.
You can make a difference in the lives of our neighbors, you can make a difference in helping the "least of His people". Won't you join us? This year we need your help more than ever. Please join us on Saturday, March 16th 2019 "Walk for the Poor". If you can't join us please consider making a tax deductible donation from our HOME or SUPPORT page by clicking the "DONATE" button.

Stuff the Bus In support of the Food Bank Of Manatee
Volunteers from Saint Vincent de Paul Society Ss Peter and Paul Church Conference partnered with Boy Scout Troop # 64 in collecting food for Stuff the Bus outside the 75th and Manatee Ave Publix on August 28th. This once a year event helps to provide food to the Food Bank of Manatee. The Food Bank then distributes food to non-profit agencies including food pantries, soup kitchens and churches. These agencies, including Saint Vincent de Paul Society make the food available throughout the year to those in need of nutritional assistance.
