Help St. Vincent de Paul Celebrate Ozanam Sunday
We should assist the poor in every way and do it both by ourselves and by enlisting the help of others …. To do this is to preach the gospel by words and work. St. Vincent de Paul
Sunday, April 28th is known as Ozanam Sunday. We celebrate the lives of St. Vincent de Paul and Fredric Ozanam, the founder of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Here in Juneau, the St. Vincent de Paul Society has been serving the poor and homeless since 1985 and we need your support to continue.
We provide direct aid to homeless individuals and families bUpload Filesy supplying food, clothing, heating and rent assistance, bus tokens and support. We currently have 52 people, including 24 children, living at our transitional shelter. We manage 135 units of low income housing and many of our clients suffer from disabilities. We recently provided 200 food vouchers at Juneau Project Homeless Connect.
April through June are the most challenging months for us financially. Please support our 2019 Spring Appeal to keep our Aid to the Poor Program funded so that our brothers and sisters in need in our community can be fed, sheltered, and clothed.
Donate by stopping by the St. Vincent office in Smith Hall at 8619 Teal St. You can donate online here.
In the spirit of Fredric Ozanam! Thank you for your support,
St. Vincent de Paul Board President
