Saint Vincent de Paul Society- Yuba City
St. Vincent de Paul assists those in need with food, clothing, rent and utility bills, furniture, household goods, etc. Each request for assistance is followed up with a home visit by a team of volunteers. The volunteers are the eyes, ears and hands of Jesus and are an example of his love and concern for all of our brothers and sisters. On the home visit, they gather information on the needs of the family, assess the situation, and offer assistance when appropriate. These home visits close with an invitation to prayer if the persons are open to that offer.
The society has monthly meetings on the 1st Monday of each month at 7:00pm in the SDvP building which is located behind the church on the north side. The meetings are designed to increase the spirituality of our members with a time of reflection and meditation. Members also share their experiences in helping others and there are some business items to attend to.

St. Isidore Conference of St. Vincent de Paul is sponsoring two holiday events for those in need in our community:
Please join us as we serve a holiday meal to the homeless in our community. We need greeters, servers, set-up, clean-up and table hosts at the dinner. We also need pies for dessert. We are planning on serving 200+ meals.
In addition, we will be collecting donations of gifts to give our guests. The most critical needs are tarps to keep their belongings dry, socks, coats (new or gently used), gloves, and warm sleeping bags and tents. Please drop your donations at the office, or small items may be placed in the Food Locker box in the church vestibule. We will also be collecting personal care items (travel size shampoo, hand sanitizer/soap, toothpaste, deodorant etc.) to distribute at the dinner.
Anyone wishing to volunteer in any capacity, please contact the church office or send us an e-mail.
SVdP is collecting donations for our Nativity Program – put Christ in Christmas campaign. Every $5 donation will purchase a nativity set and bi-lingual book explaining the true meaning of Christmas. These gift sets will be distributed to the needy in our community through our home visits and the Food Lockers bags in the month of December. Please support this campaign to remind everyone of the true meaning of Christmas. We currently give approximately 80-100 bags of food to families each month. We would like to be able to include a nativity set in every bag distributed during Advent, so please be generous in your support of this campaign.
