The SVdP Society is pleased to announce that we now have freezers and refrigerators in the food pantry, which will enable us to accept cheese, eggs, milk, and meats (hots dogs, ground beef, sausage, etc.). These items must be donated in person so that they may be immediately refrigerated or frozen.

Donations of non-perishable items may also be made in the narthex at SVdP Catholic Church in the bins beneath the information table.

About the St. Vincent de Paul Society
Linked by the common mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, there are 68 Conferences operating throughout North Georgia. These are groups of 5 to 50 people putting their faith into action by responding to the needs of people in their local community, regardless of ethnic or religious background.
The three goals of a Conference are the spiritual growth of the members, developing solidarity among the members and with those in need, and serving people with compassion, generosity, and respect.
Within the policies of the International Society and the directives of the Atlanta Council each Conference operates independently, resulting in a wide variety of consistent and innovative services and programs which address the specific needs of the local community. Such services include food pantries, thrift stores, referrals to other resources, educational programs, spiritual and financial assistance.
Most often, the assistance given is temporary to help an individual or family over a bump in the road. In certain cases, the Conference may commit to a longer period of assistance to help lift a family out of a continuing struggle that has a foreseeable end.
For example, this Uplift program as it is called, may help a single mother finish a technical degree so that she can obtain a higher paying job and move beyond the continuing need for assistance.
The Internal Revenue Service classifies the St. Vincent de Paul Society as a 501(c) (3) charitable organization. All contributions are tax deductible, as allowable under IRS guidelines.
