What better way to give than to double your gift with a match from the Patterson Foundation. That's right the Patterson Foundation will once again be matching all gifts $25.00 to $100.00 donated online during the Giving Challenge starting at Noon on May 1st through Noon May 2nd! Help us once again to reach our goal. In 2016 we raised $26,000 thanks to all our generous supporters, in 2018 we'd like to increase that amount. We thank all those who gave so generously, we were Blessed in your giving and we are prayerful you will join us again this year. Watch for more information and please join us and give on May 1st and 2nd. Help us raise the money we need to serve our bothers and sisters struggling in their life situations! Without you we can't do it. Thank you and may God richly Bless you.
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.
4th 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 2,445 individuals and families. But we were forced to turn others away due to a lack of funds.
We want to thank all of you who attended and walked with us on March 24th at the 2018 Annual "Walk for the Poor". It was a beautiful morning and we walked along the River front raising money to support our brothers and sisters struggling to meet their own financial needs. By the Grace of God our walk was a huge success. It couldn't have happened with out the donations of those who supported and walked with us. We thank you for your support of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and we thank you for joining us in service to others.
You helped make a difference in helping the "least of His people".
