May 24, 2015 - Holy Name Society Sponsors St. Vincent de Paul Clothing Drive

Saint Anselm Clothing Drive

Supports the

Saint Vincent de Paul Society

 

The Saint Anselm Holy Name Society’s annual Used Clothing Drive for the benefit of the St. Vincent de Paul Society took place on Sunday, May 24th. Dozens of our parishioners and neighbors came out before and during the morning Masses to contribute dresses, suits, shirts, coats and casual wear. The more than one hundred bags that were donated will benefit the Saint Vincent de Paul Society in stocking racks in their stores to provide income for St. Vincent’s charitable programs and in providing clothing to distribute to the poor. 

 

We thank the St. Vincent de Paul Society for providing this much-needed service. And, we extend a special thank you to the driver of the collection truck, Enrique, who greeted every contributor with a smile and a thank you.

 

For more than a century the St. Vincent de Paul Society has served those in need in Brooklyn, and through out the United States and the world.

 

A Prayer to St. Vincent de Paul

O Lord, give us the grace

That you bestowed

Upon your servant, St. Vincent de Paul,

To relinquish that temptation

Of material things

In our holy effort

To minister to the poor.

 

Thank you St. Anselm Parishioners for your support!

 

All the Best
