Audrey Watry, St. Vincent De Paul

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 service to the needy and suffering in tradition of its founder Blessed Frederic Ozanam and its patron St. Vincent de Paul. All money raised by your donation of good goes back into the community. They have been at the old Copps store for about five years. Their prior location by the Holiday Inn has been donated to the Fondy Food Pantry. It will open soon. They are the largest lay organization. In addition to donation of goods and buying at the store, you can donate $100 for a “Helping Others Tile”. Be sure to buy a Vinny Card for $5.28 to be eligible for their special sales days. For furniture pickup dial 322-9505. To get help with rent, utilities, or food call 933-3650.
