The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a group of individuals who work on a voluntary basis, serving the spiritual and material needs of the needy. The St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Anthony Parish serves individuals in need in Clark County, Indiana.
Among their many activities are the distribution of food, clothing, and other items. They are always looking for volunteers to help organize and distribute food from the pantry located in the basement of the Parish Office.
Open Food Pantry is the 4th Tuesday of every month from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
The Food Pantry is also available by appointment on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Intake Procedures for the Food Pantry:
1. Photo ID
2. Proof of Residency (i.e. copy recent of bills that shows address)
3. Most recent Utility Bill (i.e land line phone, gas, water, electric)
4. Social Security Card for each member of family
The organization is funded by the generosity of St. Anthony Parishioners. In addition, funding is received from an annual Walk for the Poor every October. St. Anthony parishioners are encouraged to walk or sponsor a walker.
Regular monthly meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm in Benedictine Hall located in the Parish Office.
Those interested in becoming involved with the society can call the Parish Office and leave a message for Jay Hall, President.
