The Kindness of Strangers

This is the time of year when most of us share the peace and joy of the Christmas season with our families. But what about people who have no families? Many of us are already planning our holiday menus. But what about people who suffer from food insecurity? For some people, the meaning of peace and joy is having enough money to pay the bills and put food on the table.

For individuals and families struggling to make it from one paycheck to the next, it's easy for the spirit of Christmas to be overshadowed by worried about basic necessities: How will I pay the rent and utility bills this month? I can't afford to have my prescription filled. What will I do if I'm evicted? That's where we come in St. Vincent de Paul's mission is to fulfill Christ's message of love and compassion, and you can enable us to do that. When you support our efforts, it is His hand that is guiding you.
