Food for the hungry
This Christmas, send your love somewhere it's never been before

Meal

What are you doing for Christmas?

 

As you make your holiday plans … stock up with good things to eat and drink … and shop for gifts for your loved ones, please spare a thought for others.

 

The beggar at the traffic lights … the homeless people living under the bridge … the hopeless, jobless people who sit at home day after day, wondering where the money for the rent and electricity will come from … the kids who won’t be getting gifts from Santa … and those who will go hungry on Christmas Day – just as they do every other day.

Imagine if each one us made the decision to help ease just one other person’s burden.

Jesus told us: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matt 25:40) He told us feed and clothe the hungry, invite strangers in, and look after those who are sick and in prison.

And, as Vincentians, that’s exactly what we will do. Will you join together with us so that no one in need gets left out this Christmas?

Donate now

Please consider making a donation of food items for one of our soup kitchens, non-perishable pantry goods for food parcels, unwanted clothing and shoes in good condition, or toys and school stationery for children from poor families.

 

Simply drop your donation off at your nearest Society of St Vincent de Paul, most of which are situated within the grounds of a Catholic Church. If you don’t know where to drop items, please contact us.

Or make a monetary donation online right now, that can be quickly channelled to wherever it’s needed most.

Let’s celebrate the birth of our Saviour in the way that would please Him most … by reaching out to the poorest of the poor and drawing them in so they too, may feel the magic of Christmas. And may God bless us all!

Heart of our work

Our core work involves alleviating the worst human suffering in areas of abject poverty – where families live in homes made of cardboard or thin plastic … where unemployment and malnutrition is rife … and where parents are dying and leaving children to care for one another.

We help the hungry, the homeless, the sick, vulnerable children and destitute aged.

And because most of the work is done by volunteers, almost every cent you donate goes directly to helping those in need.
