St. Vincent's House of Hope Food Collection Distributes Five Tons Of Food To Needy.
As we just took in the last round of donations from our off site locations and added them to the food and monetary contributions made from our associates, students, visitors, patients, volunteers, physicians and area schools, St. Vincent's is happy to report that through this initiative we collected and distributed just over 10,000 lbs (5 tons) of food.
This exceeded last year’s total of 4.5 tons. With a standard 40 pound food box feeding a family of four for 3-5 days, our contributions will assist many in the surrounding area.
Those who generously supported this effort by volunteering and/or donating should be proud of truly living our Mission
“Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance.”
