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.
An Invitation to Serve: We extend an invitation to you to serve our neighbors in need. If you are interested volunteering, please contact [email protected].
How to Contribute to the SVdP Ministry: Please write checks to SVdP – St. Jude Food Pantry. You can mail your donation (SVdP – St. Jude Food Pantry, 500 E. Dallas Street, Mansfield, TX 76063), place it in the church’s collection basket at mass (designated SVdP monthly church envelope or blue SVdP envelope located in narthex), or deliver it to the food pantry. Food donations can be placed in the designated church food boxes located in the narthex or delivered to the food pantry. The food pantry is located across the street from the new church and is open on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. During the COVID pandemic, we have a drive-through service during our hours of operation. Thank you for your contributions.
The Saint Vincent de Paul will be distributing Thanksgiving food boxes to families in need again this year on November 19th. Your help is needed in order to have all the food items necessary to fill each box.
The following items are needed: cans of green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, cream of mushroom soup, cranberry sauce, French fried onions, turkey gravy, chicken broth, pie filling; and also bags of stuffing-
dressing mix and boxes of cornbread mix. Frozen turkeys, pie crusts and bread rolls will also be accepted, but due to limited fridge space we ask for
you to consider making a donation for these specific items and our SVdP staff will buy them the day before the Turkey boxes are distributed. You may place any of these non- perishable food items in the designated SVdP box in the narthex of the St. Jude Church or deliver them to the St. Jude Food Pantry on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9:00 – 11:00 A.M. via the drive-through service. The SVdP St. Jude Conference greatly appreci- ates your continued support in ministering to people who are food insecure.
