St. Vincent de Paul

The Saint Vincent de Paul Society relies on donations from our parish family, members of the community, the Salvation Army, and other local organizations to help those in need. Throughout the Panther Valley area, we have posted flyers advertising our emergency food pantry services. Those in need simply pull a tab from the flyer and call the parish office. They will receive a return phone call from one of our members, who will assess their needs and deliver food to their door.

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, also known as LIHEAP, is now open for 2018! 

LIHEAP helps families living on low incomes pay their heating bills in the form of a cash grant. Crisis grants also are for households in immediate danger of being without heat.  With cash grants, a one-time payment is sent directly to the utility company/fuel provider, and will be credited on your bill. Cash grants range from $200 to $1,000 based on household size, income, and fuel type. Remember: This is a grant and does not have to be repaid. Please click here for more information or to apply for the program.
