Research indicates that a good night’s sleep helps children perform better in school. Without a bed to call their own, children may be restless and tired during the school day. Our Sweet Dreams Bed Program provides a bed to a child now sleeping on the floor or in a chair.
We would like to recognize and thank the following foundations for their financial support of nearly $80,000 to support our bed program in the past year: The Pfau Foundation, Diocese of Covington Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal (DPAA), PNC Charitable Trusts/Schroth Family Foundation, Marge and Charles Schott Foundation, Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, and the Fifth Third Foundation – Ohio Valley Foundation. Click on the link below to read more on how important this special program we provide is!

Your recent gifts to our pantry make a difference! We have doubled the number of people we’ve served compared to last year during this same time period. We’ve provided over $175,000 worth of groceries to families in need since October. We know it is a very difficult time now for some of our neighbors. We can only do this with your help! Thank you for sharing food (and hope!!) with those in need!

July 8, 2022

We’d like to share the story of a family who recently visited our food pantry so that you can see the impact your gift has on your neighbors. They agreed to share their story as an expression of their gratitude. On a limited income due to a disability, these grandparents have been raising their grandson with special needs for the last 10 years. With rising energy and food prices, this family is struggling to get by in today’s economic climate. They lost their home in 2020 and are now in the process of converting a garage into a house. They first visited us for an air conditioner in June to help cool their new home and learned of the pantry during that visit. As they work hard to get back on their feet, their visit to the pantry this month has helped them save their limited income to pay their monthly bills and also make sure they can provide food for their family, especially that fast growing grandson! They are grateful that St. Vincent de Paul is able to provide this support during a challenging time. The grandmother commented, “I try to budget, but it doesn’t matter how I plan, there just isn’t enough for everything we need right now. Times are tough and it can be scary, but that is life sometimes. At least we are all together and have a roof over our heads. We’ll make it.” Thank you for supporting our pantry outreach and enabling us to share hope with our neighbors weathering a difficult time in their lives. We are blessed to serve with your help!
