St Juan Diego St Vincent de Paul Quarterly Report

Over the final quarter of 2012 SJD St Vincent de Paul remained very active in assisting those in need within our local area.  We had an increase throughout the period in the number of families helped per service day culminating in an average of 13 families per day in December.  We also continue to help local children with weekend meals through our backpack program at McKinley (30 kids) and Springville (13 kids) Elementary Schools.  In November and December we were the recipient of numerous food drive donations including the following: Girl Scouts 3360 lbs, Boy Scouts 4392 lbs, Godfathers Pizza 1339 lbs, Sunset High School 1530 lbs and Portland Community College 304 lbs.  The noted food drives along with generous donations from people like you, have enabled us to fill our shelves and continue to help these families and kids in need.

In December we were excited to help an additional 30 families through our first independent Christmas Food Box program.  This program allowed us to target those families most in need and provide them with boxes of food for a Christmas meal, a gift card from a local grocery store for a meat purchase and additional gift cards for the purchase of Christmas gifts for family members.  Thanks so much to all of you for your continuing support of our mission by your donations through Global Giving!
