St Vincent de Paul Place will be distributing and delivering roast beef dinners on Christmas Day. On that day, we would like to give each person or family a Miracle Bag.

Miracle bags are gift bags that contain items like warm hats, gloves and personal hygiene items. We estimate that we will need 600 of these bags this year. You can help us fill these bags. We need the following:

 

  •  Warm Hats
  •  Gloves Men/Women
  •  Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Toothpaste/Toothbrush
  •  Shaving cream
  •  Razors
  •  Deodorant

You or your group may compose a card with uplifting quotes or drawings. Our patrons are often spending struggle with the holidays. Our patrons really value these connections to friends. We will include your cards and notes in the bags.

Please bring in your donations before December 17th. Donations can be brought in bulk or in individual bags. We include $10 gift cards from grocery stores, Walmart or McDonalds. Any help is greatly appreciated.
