Our St Vincent de Paul Society is thankful to St John Fisher parishioners, the Catholic Women's League and the Knights of Columbus for their generous contributions.
Every month, with your help, we are able to support between 40-50 families in our church boundaries with food and/or FreshCo or No Frills gift cards (about $2,000). In September, we usually support children with school supplies and in December, we provide Christmas hampers of non-perishable food items and gift cards.
This year because of Covid, we are not allowed to deliver food items and are mailing our gift cards. We were unable to hold our annual summer garage sale that usually raises about $1,500 and our Poor Box collection has drastically reduced from $1,200 to $300 each month.
Here's how you can help:
If you feel called to assist, please contact our President, Joseph Ashok at (905) 487-2671. You have an opportunity to help your SJF Vincentians to see the Face of Jesus in the smiles of our poor this Christmas and through the year.
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40
