St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving Food Drive &
Call for Volunteers
Join Us!

Hundreds of our neighbors in the Brazos Valley struggle to have enough food for their families, or pay their bills. Lack of enough affordable housing, good paying jobs, and uncertain health care is a daily disaster situation for them. Every Thanksgiving season, Catholic parishioners have an opportunity to assist our neighbors in a simple, meaningful way. A yearly effort of the St. Vincent de Paul Society provides 200+ low or no-income families with groceries for their Thanksgiving meal. How can you help?


Bring non-perishable food items to the SVdP food drive at your church

from October 30- November 13

Here are the needs:

  • 15 oz. cans of corn

  • 15 oz. cans of green beans
