St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee
St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee remains a pillar of strength for Milwaukee neighbors in need during this uncertain time. Now, more than ever, the Society relies on support from community partners and friends to ensure services remain strong. There are numerous opportunities for you to help SVDP Milwaukee help others during this time, such as:
Contact the St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) members in your parish or a neighboring parish that has a St. Vincent de Paul group (referred to as a “conference”). They truly are the hands and feet of Christ as they make calls to neighbors in need and offer assistance to alleviate some of the hardship to obtain basic necessities. Ask how you can help them, offer your prayers and find out more about how your SVDP conferences are making a difference in your local community.
Thank you for your support and prayers. For more information contact Rebecca Surges, Director of Development & Communications, Email: email@example.com or Phone: (262) 751-8103.
