Each year, the St. Vincent de Paul headquarters in Stoughton offers the Franklin St. Mary's St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving food baskets ($10 each) for distribution throughout the community. If you are in need of assistance for Thanksgiving, please call the St. Vincent de Paul office at 508-918-2291.
The St. Mary's St. Vincent de Paul Society will be conducting its 9th annual Thanksgiving Food Drive on the weekend of Nov 18/19 to enhance the baskets from HQ and to restock our food pantry shelves.
Suggested items to donate include applesauce, cranberry juice, popcorn, peanut butter, jelly, jams, cookies, crackers, bread mix, pudding, candy corn, cranberry sauce, stuffing, cereal, fruit cocktail, coffee/tea/cocoa, boxes of chocolate, canned yams and vegetables, rice, chowder, and a Thanksgiving tablecloth or decoration.
Donations may also be dropped off any time between now and Sun, Nov 19 and may be placed in the boxes at the doors of the church. Please know that these donations will give many families in the community a memorable Thanksgiving dinner. Your donations to the SVdP food pantry provide support throughout the year for our neighbors in need.
Recently a mom came to the food pantry to pick up some groceries. When she saw a banana bread mix in one of the bags, she said, " I took this off the shelf in the grocery store yesterday but decided that I could not afford it." She was so happy to have this mix to share with her family. "God saw my need and sent you."
