Generally on a person-to-person basis, members of the Society help those in need, regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, gender, orientation, handicap or religion.

Q3 2016

During the month of May 2016 the St Juan Diego, St Vincent de Paul food pantry was able to serve 137 families consisting of 356 adults and 259 children.  These families received a total of 10,455 pounds of much needed food.  We made two deliveries of food to families unable to travel to our pantry.  We ended the school year serving 47 hungry kids at McKinley and Springville Elementary schools.

Additionally in May we provided two families with $600 in rent assistance, which allowed them to stay in their homes.  To date during the month of June, rental assistance requests have increased dramatically.  In that time we have helped five families with rental assistance totalling $1850.  We thank you all so much for your generosity, which contributes significantly to our mission!

Q2 2016

In February 2016 our St Juan Diego St Vincent de Paul food pantry provided 11,565 pounds of food for 155 families consisting of 392 adults and 267 children.  Our backpack program has grown and now provides a total of 51 hungry children from McKinley and Springville Elementary Schools with food for their weekend needs.

Additionally in February we were able to provide three families with a total of $750 in emergency rental assitance to help keep them in their homes.  We also provided four families $744.01 in utility assistance to help keep the heat on and water flowing at their residences.  Several of these families reside just outside our parish boundaries, but their local St Vincent de Paul Conference had run out of funds for rent and utility assistance, so our help was especially needed.

Thanks in part to all of you, we are able to continue to serve those in need in our community!

Q1 2016

In November 2015 our St Juan Diego St Vincent de Paul food pantry served 120 families including 292 adults and 224 children.  Our backpack program provided 40 hungry school children at Mckinley Elementary and 8 at Springville Elementary with food for weekends at home.

In December, through our Christmas program, we were able to provide 28 local families in need with a special food box along with gift cards for each family member to make their Christmas a little brighter.

We continue to help local families with rent or utility assistance.  Exemplifying the gratitude of these families one recipient anonymously donated $100 to our pantry with a note stating "This is for helping me when I was down and out. Maybe it can help someone else."

Thank you all for your support!
