St. Vincent de Paul – Monthly Wish List
Since the opening of our new Mission 27 Resale Store at 132 Leota St., the need for donated material goods and volunteers is constantly growing and changing. We need to make certain we always have enough merchandise and enough hands to keep the store running at peak efficiency. This monthly wish list will let you know what we need at the store/Distribution Center for our clients and our customers. It will also outline our critical volunteer needs at both the Distribution Center and the Food Pantry.
Revenue generated from Mission 27 Resale will be used to supply more nutritional food to those we serve and to expand our Changing Lives Forever Program. Material donations needed: Sofas, Dressers, Dining Room Tables/Chairs, Card Tables, Blankets, Pots & Pans, Men’s Jeans, Children’s Clothing Donations of clothing, shoes and purses can be dropped in one of 24 drop boxes in the city or at 1201 E.

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, invites women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to the needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.
As a reflection of the whole family of God, members, known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic and cultural background, age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing, and are nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings, and adherence to a basic Rule. Organized locally, Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice.
The Christ the King Conference of St. Vincent de Paul supports the needy of our parish and community through direct contribution of money, food, blankets, donated items, volunteerism, and spiritual support. We work closely with the Archdiocesan Council and with other parish conferences in relieving need. Examples of activities performed by our parish Conference consists of visiting the homes of the client to evaluate their needs, working at the warehouse, the Client Choice Food Pantry or the St. Thomas Food Pantry in various capacities, answering phones calls for the needy or for incoming donation pickup, and organizing food and kitchen item donation drives.
