2014 Thanksgiving Family Food Box Project...
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho District Council sponsors the Thanksgiving Family Food Box Project. Each Thanksgiving the Society collaborates with Ada County's ecumenical community, businesses, foundations, civic groups and local schools, to provide Thanksgiving Family Food Baskets to ensure that those that need assistance are able to enjoy a complete Thanksgiving dinner with their families. This Project depends on the generosity of the members of our community and represents the true spirit of Thanksgiving.

For information on how you too can be part of this wonderful project please click here.

Garage Sale Pick Up Service...
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul offers Garage Sale Pick Up Service, a convenient way to wrap up your garage sale weekend. Check out our Donate Goods page for more information.

Appeal for Donations...
Winter weather is here, and with it comes special needs for winter coats and warm clothing. Supplying food, clothes and funds to assist with utility bills, are just a fraction of the assistance offered by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Here in Southwest Idaho, the need is great, especially during our cold winter months. Please take a moment to consider donating to our cause thereby helping our neighbors in need.

If you have clothing and/or household items you would like to donate, please call your local St Vincent de Paul Thrift Store to schedule a pick up.

Thank you for Helping Us Help Others.

Jesus is reliving His passion in our poor people. The poor are really going through the passion of Christ.   
We should treat them with dignity.....Give to Christ in His distressing disguise. It is Jesus in the poor   
that you feed, clothe, and take in. Do it all with a great, undivided love.
