All of us are very familiar with the work of our St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVdP).
They help clients with utilities and other bills, food, and budget counseling. We all know how effective their Thursday Pantry Day has become. It serves many families in our area and Fred and pantry crew has honed their process to provide a very streamlined assembly line serving many families on Pantry days.
