The CMC is continuing to serve daily meals, but they have changed the way they operate to ensure safety for all. We no longer need to help serve, as the meals are currently operating as grab-and-go.

Because the need is constant in our community, our mission is to help those less fortunate never ends. Members of the Queen of Peace St. Vincent de Paul chapter thanks all of our supporters for their generous donations and for the continued help offered both now and in the future. We appreciate our Parish family for their generous support helping us to provide to those less fortunate. Mark your calendars for April 17th and 18th--the Big Truck will be back!
All the collected food will go to the Catholic Multicultural Center (CMC) with personal care, pantry items, clothing and small household appliances will go to St. Vincent de Paul. This is a fantastic opportunity for families to volunteer together, as children enjoy being big helpers. If you are coming to Mass, please donate 15 minutes of your time. Bags will be available at the doors after Mass next weekend. Any non-perishable food items will be accepted for the CMC.
Items St. Vincent de Paul can use for their pantry: bar soap, kitchen soap, laundry soap, toothpaste, deodorant and regular size shampoo and conditioner and diapers.
Other items beside clothing to consider: Gently used Bedding and linens, Books/magazines, CDs/DVDs/VHS tapes and working VCR's, shoes, belts, purses, hats, jewelry, craft / art supplies, pictures and picture frames, Dishes/glasses/cutlery, household appliances and electronics, Holiday decorations; Halloween costumes, Household and office furniture, Knick-knacks, baskets, and other decorative items. Really, You make a difference. Just to know someone cares. So thank you for your continued support and generosity! And yes, we still want your gently used Grocery BAGS too!
