ST VINCENT DE PAUL - WINTER APPEAL
Dear Parish members thank you for your ongoing food / financial donations to St Vincent de Paul. Now that winter may finally be upon us we are seeking your help for the following items:
- Cans of soup (this is taken to families in need
during the winter months with bread donated from the Flour Monkey bakery.
- New children's winter pyjamas (size 1 to 16)
- New children's socks (any size)
We are experiencing a real struggle by local families to keep warm and minimise their electricity costs during winter. We are also seeking the help from Parish members who are a qualified electrician willing to test and tag electrical items (as required) and a parish member who has a Ute and would be willing to help with rubbish removal or moving furniture. Again we would love to have more volunteers to help undertake the variety of activities we do. If you would like to find out more about St Vincent de Paul at the Parish please contact Barbara on 0438982140 or email email@example.com
