St. Vincent de Paul | San Vicente de Paul


The Society of St. Vincent de Paul greatly appreciates your support. Through your generous donations of food and monetary contributions we have been able to help our neighbors in need within the Mansfield community and our St. Jude parish. In 2021, the food pantry was able to provide food supplies for 1,296 families (5,614 people). In November, 70 families also received food boxes to prepare their Thanksgiving dinners. During the school year, in conjunction with Common Ground’s Backpack Program we provided weekend meals for 63 designated MISD students. During their summer Feed the Kids program, we provided 398 bags of food (each with 7-8 meals/week) to MISD students. In 2021, SVdP’s Financial Assistance program served 203 Mansfield families in need of assistance with their utility bills, etc.
