Global Giving Gift Campaign Supports St. Vincent's

Give the Gift of Giving This Holiday Season and Help St. Vincent Raise $$

Need a creative gift for someone who has everything? Global Giving is making contributions to a select number of its projects for the sale of Global Giving gift cards -- a unique holiday gift!  Every time 500 gift cards are purchased from the Global Giving website, Global Giving will give $500 to one of its projects -- and as a SUPERSTAR partner organization, St. Vincent's made the cut! If 7,500 cards are sold by December 31st, we will receive a $500 grant. You can track how close we are here: http://www.globalgiving.org/gifts/ . As of November 28th, over 1,300 cards have been sold!

A Thank You to Our 'One Night' Supporters

On October 20th, St. Vincent's held its first Boston fundraising event, One Night for Their Future, at Middlesex Lounge.With over 30 supporting business and approximately 75 guests, we successfully raised over $11,000 for our operations! The event included a silent auction, raffle and live Skype chat with Director, Lucy Kayiwa. These funds will keep our doors open to the children and families we serve for several months! Many thanks for all those that helped to organize the event and of course, all those that contributed!
