“I will always welcome joyfully any opportunity that comes my way to be of service to you.”
— St. Vincent de Paul


In both the Spring and Fall St. Vincent de Paul along with several local partners provides food boxes, a variety of cleaning supplies, a hot meal, and other home essentials for our local Veterans. We take these items to the Boise VA hospital and set up a drive-through line to load all food, and supplies directly into the vehicle.

St. Vincent de Paul drops food to Gowen Field. We are so thankful for the opportunity to provide food to Veterans and their families on-site once a month.

To receive a food box, please contact the Airguard Family Readiness Coordinator, Heather Echols, located at Base Services.

For 47 years, the St. Vincent de Paul Society has sponsored an annual Thanksgiving food box outreach program for those less fortunate.  This is a family-to-family act of charity.  Your family can share the tradition of Thanksgiving with families in need. 

This is an opportunity for you to directly impact a family in need.  Please consider helping us provide a Thanksgiving dinner for those who would otherwise be unable to afford one.




Each year, St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho opens the Christmas Toy Store to families in need who cannot afford to purchase Christmas Gifts for their children. In partnership with local school counselors in Ada and Canyon County, we provide gifts at no out-of-pocket cost to families with children ages 0-18 to shop at our Christmas Toy Store.
