St. Vincent De Paul Christmas Food Baskets

Once again SVDP is asking for your help with the holiday food basket donations. Due to Covid-19, SVDP will be purchasing all the food necessary to fill the baskets this year.

If you would like to help, we are accepting monetary donations and gift cards to local grocery stores to purchase food. Please place your donation in the collection basket in an envelope marked SVDP Food Basket Donation. Make all checks payable to Saint Vincent de Paul Society.

Thank you!
