Area Families in Need Benefit From Turkey Donation
An anonymous man donated 28 turkeys to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry yesterday, less than one week before the Thanksgiving holiday.
“Thank you to the kind man for donating all of these turkeys to our food pantry,” the Outreach Center said in a Facebook post. “Thank you Pick n Save for the great deal! Thanksgiving just got better for 28 area families through the generosity of others. We are blessed to be in such a caring community. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We all have something to be thankful for.”
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a world-wide organization founded in Paris, France in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam for the purpose of serving the needy with food, clothing, housing and guidance, and has been active in Marshfield since 1923.
Established to serve the needy, the store provides clothing, furniture, household items, books, sport equipment, and more. Proceeds from the Thrift Store are the primary source of funds with which to operate the Outreach Department.
The Outreach Center provides a Food Pantry, the USDA Food Program, a Free Medical Clinic and other services. It also dispenses Thrift Store merchandise vouchers to those in need.
