Helping Neighbors Starts at Home

Your help continues to make a difference

August 2016

Back in 1937, Nancy was just a year old. She was the fifth of sixth children. Her father worked for the railroad and her mother raised their children. That year, her father died of cancer at age 42. There was no social security or railroad pension then, and Nancy’s mother had to find help quickly to keep food on the table. She reached out to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at St. Luke’s parish in Richmond Heights. Nancy says they never went hungry and always had clothes to wear, and she is sure it’s because of the help from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

This month, Nancy came into some money and immediately thought of her upbringing. She says she feels indebted to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and made a donation to say thank you to the organization that helped her family. And we thank you for the donations you continue to make to help our neighbors in need for the past 175 years.
