Thank You Messages

Dear St Vincent de Paul,

My name is *Susan and I have been helped by your organization this past month.

I cannot begin to tell you how helpful your help has been. Thank you.

I have been unemployed for 18 months and I have used all the resources I had. I was at a very low point in my life with the shut off notice in -21 degree weather. The stress was almost unbearable. I started to pray…. Really I did. Something I haven’t done. St Vincent answered that prayer.

I have since been approved for my disability case and should have an income in the next month or two.

Thank you for taking the stress of these bills off my shoulders. I haven’t cried in about two weeks! My life is coming together again and I personally believe that things happen for a reason and I have learned that prayers are answered and I have faith now that will continue to make my life better. Thank you again.

This is a wonderful organization.

Thank you,
