“Shut off,” “eviction,” “laid off,” “water leak,” and “disconnect” are all words that we hear frequently at our St. Vincent de Paul meetings. There are so many individuals and families in our own St. Ben’s neighborhood that are living on the edge month to month. Any matter of unfortunate circumstances can tip them over and put them behind to the point of losing electricity, water, their place to live or even custody of their children. We do what we can to help. This past week, we were able to help a couple avoid a water shut off, a family with their rent and a man with both his rent and his water bill. It seems like the cost of living keeps rising, but for many of these folks – their incomes do not. When you donate to the St. Vincent de Paul conference at St. Ben’s, please know that we are good stewards with your contributions. We work hard each week to ensure that your generosity is going to those that are truly in need so that maybe they can avoid a few of these words and see some light at the end of their month.
