Help us spread kindness far and wide

A 'Prayer for a Pandemic' and how you can help build hope in your community

When the rest of the world feels chaotic and full of fear, let our kindness and hope shine brighter. At St. Vincent de Paul we offer hope in many forms. Sometimes it’s a warm meal, delivering a food box to a doorstep, a doctor healing a patient’s pain, the comfort of a warm bed, or the relief a family feels when their rent is paid.  

These moments of hope unite us, and they are there for the making—by you. Imagine in the coming weeks, a community empowered by kindness—one where we call an elderly neighbor, leave a carton of eggs for the next shopper to come, share a smile as we pass each other at a distance, or offer a bit of our surplus to someone living with less. 

For many people, the COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge and disrupter of daily life, but for those people who lack resources and options, it wreaks havoc on the little bit of margin they may have. Let’s be ALL IN on kindness and ALL IN to support each other.

Join us today in pledging hope over fear by spreading kindness—however you can—in your community.
