WHAT WE DO
WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1980 by the Sisters of Mercy and the Catholic Diocese of Norwich, St. Vincent De Paul meets the needs of the poor and homeless in greater Middletown, Connecticut. A four-pronged mission, St. Vincent's provides nutritious meals through our community Soup Kitchen and connects people to basic support services and emergency funds through our Community Assistance Program. We also operate the Amazing Grace Food Pantry and a Supportive Housing Program serving individuals with disabilities.
OUR GREATEST NEEDDo you have any spare time? We are in need of someone (or a couple people to share on a rotating basis) a morning pick-up at the Rocky Hill Big Y on Monday & Friday mornings. It involves transferring bakery salvage from shopping carts into a car. There are 2-5 shopping carts full usually. It takes about 45 mins-1hr so it's not a big time commitment but it does involve some physical work & someone who has a car (station wagon/SUV). We usually go between 9a.m.-10:30 AM. The driver would deliver the items to the Soup Kitchen. We have volunteers to unload so the person is not required to do that. Contact Lydia Brewster 860-344-0097 x18 or email Lydia@svdmiddletown.org if you can help!
Do you have extra ceramic coffee cups, stainless steel forks, spoons? Well the soup kitchen could use them...Chef Jeremiah also adds that we could use butter, cheese, any dairy products other than milk (sour cream, cheese, yogurt, cream), pasta, any kind other than spaghetti, spices and dried herbs (particularly cumin, thyme, ginger, garlic and onion powders, but anything can be useful), olive oil, artichokes, roasted peppers, olives – any antipasta type items, produce - onions, celery and carrots in particular, but anything is helpful and salad or salad ingredients of any sort. You can drop them off between 7 a.m.-2p.m. or call Lydia Brewster @ 860-344-0097 x18 to make a special arrangement...THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Amazing Grace really is a community of people in the best sense of what a community can be! To have so much good energy among such a diverse group of people who are all committed to caring for their neighbors in need is really our offer of hope to each other and those around us. This year's Amazing Challenge 2013 was a night of amazing grace.
