JOIN THE FEINSTEIN CHALLENGE

The 2014 Feinstein Challenge to Fight Hunger is well underway and your help is needed for us to be successful. The Feinstein Foundation of Rhode Island offer $1 million to be divided among any and all organizations helping to feed needy families through food pantries, kitchens and other facilities.

To receive a grant from the Foundation all we need to do is report all of the money and food items collected during the months of March and April and based on our total we will receive a grant.

More importantly, all money and food collected stays right here in our area to be used to feed needy families.

If you would like to help or make a donation call 814-539-4627 or send a donation to SVDP Food For Families at 927 Franklin St. Johnstown, PA 15905. Please mark the memo line FEINSTEIN.

Welcome to St. Vincent dePaul Johnstown and Altoona Diocese

 
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international catholic lay organization which offers women and men the opportunity for spiritual formation through person-to-person service to the poor and needy.

Founded in France in 1833 by a young college student, Frederic Ozanam, The Society grew quickly. The Society models its service to the poor after St. Vincent de Paul, a French priest who lived in France in the 15th Century.

The first SVDP conference in the United States was organized in 1845 in St. Louis. Missouri which today is the site of the Society's National Headquarters.

The Society was reorganized in the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese in 1981 and continues today with
20 parish conferences, 8 thrift stores, 5 food pantries, 2 food distribution warehouses, 2 family kitchens and a car donation program. Twinning projects assist the needy in West Virginia and areas of Latin America.
