The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul – Halton Particular CouncilFood Security
Fundraising goal: $25,000
Our work at the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) is grounded in love of neighbour and justice. The five groups (known as conferences) of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Oakville serve over 1,350 neighbours in need (~ 835 adults and 515 children). We make no distinction of creed, ethnic or social background, health, gender or political opinions. No work of charity is foreign to SSVP: from grocery cards to Christmas giving to educational supports for our youth, connecting neighbours to community and government resources and advocating for their rights. We visit with our neighbours in their homes and we establish personal relationships by offering material assistance, as well as friendship and understanding. We serve in hope.
