February 2023 Update

Since January 2nd All Saints conference has received the following requests from our ‘neighbors’:
• 60 individuals needing help with electric
• 15 for water
• 7 for appliances
• 42 for clothing
• 13 for furniture and miscellaneous household items
• 19 needing beds. We provide adult beds and refer beds for children under 18 to Sleep in Heavenly Peace.

After we make a home visit, this group goes to the home and builds the bed on site; they also provide a mattress and bedding. One of our volunteers received a video of a child dancing around her new bed.

As of January 15th, we have paid $5,031 to CenterPoint, $1,652 to EWSU, $357 to the Thrift Store, and $380 to Andersons Appliances. We have been able to help thanks to the generosity of All Saints Parishioners and Friends. We also receive grants from the Diocese, Catholic Charity, and trusts from deceased parishioners.

Last year CenterPoint provided a grant that reimbursed us for water and
rent. We meet Wednesdays at 5:15pm at St. Anthony Campus, new members are always welcome. Join us!

Thank you for your continued support to St. Vincent de Paul!
