St Vincent De Paul Holy Cross Conference, despite the Covid-19 Emergency, is continuing to provide services to families in need and the homeless. Thank you to “The Parishioners of Holy Cross Church” for your support in the past and in the future. Without you we would be unable to continue to operate during this National Emergency. You may mail your gift to the parish or bring in person to the parish office. Checks should be made payable to: St. Vincent de Paul.
We are always in need of cereal, jam, jelly, canned chili, Vienna sausages, canned Ravioli, peanut butter, and long crew socks. These items are given out to our homeless year round. Thank you in advance for your donations.
Household items and other clothing can be donated to your closest St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Store or call 602-266-4673 to schedule a pick up of large household items.
