The conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) is a Catholic organization dedicated to serving individuals and families in our community during tough times. We provide tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. It is through this personal involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. SVdP provides emergency one-time assistance, often networking with other area SVDP conferences, charitable, and government organizations. Assistance includes help with utility bills, rent, transportation and medical expenses. Most importantly, we provide emotional and when needed, spiritual support to ease a difficult time. Members of the Society grow spiritually through fellowship and in service to our neighbors.
St Vincent de Paul Society Annual School Drive JULY 9 THRU AUGUST 9
The impact of the COVID 19 pandemic has certainly been difficult for families. We don’t know what the next school year will look like, but no matter what, our goal is to help and support our clients’ children prepare for a productive school year. However due to the Church’s occupancy limitations and safety measures, we are suspending our traditional school supply drive and distribution. In lieu of purchasing supplies, we are asking for cash or check donations (please no gift cards) only. This will allow us to distribute financial support in the most appropriate means to our clients, students in need at Most Blessed Trinity sharing parish, Mundelein High School, and Frassati Catholic Academy.
Thanks to your generosity over the years, we have been able to help many children feel good about their ‘first day of school’. Here is your opportunity to help us continue this tradition of supporting the less fortunate youth of our community. Please make your check out to St Vincent de Paul Society with “school drive” in the memo. Please note: Donations are for general use unless specifically marked for the “school drive”.
If you are attending Mass at church, have your donation ready to drop in the SVDP Alms for the Needy box as you enter. Our box is on the southwest wall of the narthex, before you enter the double doors to the main church.
You are also welcome to mail it to:
