Q4 2015

In September 2015 St Juan Diego St Vincent de Paul food pantry served 120 families consisting of 296 adults and 208 children with 9069 pounds of food.  During the month we also made five deliveries of food to families unable to travel to our pantry.  With the start of the school year we have again begun providing needy students with food at both McKinley and Springville Elementary Schools.

We continue to help families with rent and utility assistance.  This much needed assistance allows them to remain in their homes or continue to provide heat, light, or water for their themselves and their children.

Thank you all for your generous support!

Q3 2015

During June 2015 the St Juan Diego St Vincent de Paul food pantry was able to serve 133 families consisting of 328 adults and 214 children.  These families received a total of 9860 pounds of food.  We were able to make five deliveries of food to those local families unable to travel to the pantry.  We finished the school year providing 43 hungry children with weekend food through our backpack program.

We continue to help local families with emergency rent and utility assistance.  One homeless young man was helped with gasoline for his van, which allowed him to drive to a couple of job interviews.  

Your generous donations helped us to finally put a new roof on the pantry, which was sorely needed.  Thanks to all for your continued support.

Q2 2015

During March 2015 we served 143 families (including 376 adults and 279 children) through our food pantry.  These families received 11,340 pounds of food.  During that month we continued to help 49 hungry kids through our backpack program for McKinley and Springville elementary schools.  We also continue to help local families with emergency rent and utility assistance.

Thanks in part to your contributions we plan to replace the roof on our pantry.  This is a project that has been needed for quite a while and we will be able to go forward with the replacement shortly.

Thanks to all of you for your support which helps us help others!
