Society of St. Vincent de Paul
This emergency food hamper program is available once a month for those living within our parish boundaries. Friends may call, 226-988-5915 Monday to Friday between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon to book an appointment to arrange to pick up a hamper on Saturdays between 9:00 am and 10:00 am.
This lay organization of dedicated men and women reaches out and helps our poor and needy neighbours within our community. SSVP Members give out food hampers on Saturday mornings each week. Meetings are held once a month.
St Mary’s SSVP Conference is in constant need of the food items provided by the Food Bank of Waterloo or purchased through the generous donations of our Parishioners and donations from the public. Donations of personal care products, toiletry items and household cleaning products (no food items please) can be placed in the basket marked SSVP outside the doors to the church hall. Grocery store food cards continue to be funded from your monthly monetary donations. All donations are greatly appreciated and distributed with great care. Currently, in addition to monetary donations, we are in need of bar soap and body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, women’s and men’s razors and blades, deodorant, toilet paper, household cleaners, dish soap and laundry soap. Thank you!
