Once a year, our St. Vincent de Paul chapter creates an annual report that calculates the total donations from members, total collections that we receive from the St. Ben’s parish, as well as our total expenses. One of our main priorities is being good stewards of the generous donations that we receive and using those donations solely for the purpose that they were intended…helping our neighbors in need. Some of the most gratifying numbers on our annual report are the ones that reflect the total amount of people that we were able to help. In the last year, our chapter made 439 home visits helping a total of 1111 of our neighbors. We were able to help these people with numerous beds for their families, appliances for their kitchen, payments on their utility shut-offs, as well as vouchers for clothing and home goods. This equated to 1588 service hours from our members and an estimated 4416 miles in our Vincentian services. Although these numbers say a great deal in terms of St. Ben’s commitment to outreach, what says the most is the countless smiles and incalculable thanks that these neighbors give in return. Thank you for making our last year a successful one.
