Our Mission:  Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic lay organization, leads women and men to join together to grow spiritually by offering person to person assistance to those in need.

Who we are:   Based in Catholic parishes, Vincentians gather in groups called Conferences which focus on spirituality, fellowship and works of charity.  The  Charlotte County  District  Council of the Society of  St. Vincent de  Paul includes the Conferences at Sacred Heart, San Antonio, St. Charles Borromeo, and  St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Churches.

What we do:  When people in need of help call out, Vincentians meet with them, determine their needs, and do what they can to assist.  Each Conference location operates a food pantry where residents of Charlotte County can come for assistance.  Services are provided to individuals, without regard to race, color, disability, sex, age, or national origin.  The Society of St. Vincent de Paul has helped to feed and clothe the poor and needy of the world.  We follow in the steps of our patron, St. Vincent de Paul.  Vincentians are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of humility and sharing which is nourished by prayer and reflection.

To Volunteer:  All Conferences actively seek new volunteers as we are a 100% volunteer organization.  There are many needs at each Pantry and office location. Volunteer positions include receptionist, interviewers, case workers, pantry workers, restocking groceries, receiving and unloading food, computer input, grant writers, accounting assistance, secretarial assistance, telephone answering and calling, organizing donations received, handy man, item pickup and delivery, and Resale Shop workers.  Our wonderful volunteers work more than 3500 hours each month in providing assistance to those in need. Contact the Conference addresses given.

To Donate:   We welcome all donations.  Monetary donations can be sent to the any of the St. Vincent de Paul Conferences listed or to the Charlotte County District.  Food donations can be dropped off at any of the food pantries.  See the Conference addresses given.
