Holiday preparations are underway at St. Vincent de Paul
Christmas is in the air at St. Vincent de Paul, especially in the Family Evening Meal. Festive music plays from the speakers each night, poinsettias adorn each table centerpiece, and families gather for moments of joy and respite.
Throughout the holiday season, the staff at SVdP is doing everything they can to make sure families have enough food and presents under the tree to celebrate the holidays together this year. Not only that, but as Family Dining Program Director Cindy Bernardo explains, there are nightly activities and events planned for families right up to Christmas Day – everything from a tamale contest to an ugly sweater night.
And it's all made possible thanks to volunteers, and generous donors like you.
