St. Mary's Food Pantry is pleased to partner with the local conference of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP), which works alongside, and is housed within, our food pantry. SVdP is an international volunteer organization that provides financial assistance along with providing furniture, beds and clothing for those in need. They give hope to clients in danger of losing their place to live, or heat or electricity when a shut-off notice is imminent.
Please leave a message at 586-725-1953 to schedule an appointment.
The SVdP mission statement reads in part, “The vocation of the Society’s members, who are called Vincentians, is to follow Christ through service to those in need and so bear witness to His compassionate and liberating love. Members show their commitment through person-to-person contact. Vincentians serve in hope.”
Upon receiving a phone call or a visit to our office from a client, our Vincentians visit their home to assess needs. They will frequently find clients who are living with very little and need help to maintain a basic standard of living.
Donations are always welcome. Please make your check out to St. Vincent de Paul. Checks can be dropped off or mailed to St. Mary's, with a note that says "attention SVdP."
