Each year, the St. Vincent de Paul headquarters in Stoughton offers the Franklin St. Mary’s St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving food baskets for distribution throughout the community. If you are in need of assistance or know of anyone needing 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 10th annual Thanksgiving Food Drive throughout November to enhance the baskets from HQ and to restock our food pantry shelves. Suggested items to donate include applesauce, juice, peanut butter, jelly, cookies, crackers, stuffing mix, canned vegetables and canned fruit, boxes of chocolate and candy, rice, soups, chowder, and a Thanksgiving tablecloth or decoration.
Donations may also be dropped off any time in November 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 memorable Thanksgiving dinners. Thank you for helping to brighten the lives of those in our Franklin community. God bless.
