Will you finish the year with a final act of kindness? Please help a neighbor in need by making a tax-deductible gift today. It’s your last chance to make a year-end gift and give us a jump start on our good works for 2017 – and your generosity truly makes a difference!
This past year friends like you allowed us able to help so many in need. Neighbors like…
… Laurie, a mother of three. Laurie was living pay check to pay check, until her work hours got cut. The family had no way to keep up with all their bills and eventually received an eviction notice. Laurie was desperate, worried about how she would feed her children and keep a roof over their heads. But, with your assistance, St. Vincent de Paul-Detroit saved the family from eviction and helped them through a terrible time.
… and Chris and Jennifer and their two children. Both parents worked at a local hotel, but when it closed down, the family had hardly any savings. Before long they lost their home and were living at a motel when they found help through St. Vincent de Paul-Detroit.
But thanks to you, we were there to lift up the family and help them secure new jobs. We also found a safe home for them and provided them with furniture to begin again.
… and Sharon and David and their three young children*. A terrible fire destroyed everything they possessed in the world: furniture, toys, precious family photos… everything. The family was left with nothing but the clothes on their back. They were in shock, no insurance, no one to help. But thanks to you, we were there for them. We helped them move in to a new apartment, paid their first month and security deposit. We also provided them with clothes and furniture from a St. Vincent de Paul family thrift store.
Thank you and Blessings for 2017!
