Thank you wonderful St. Thomas Aquinas parishioners for your generous donations for our parish St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Conference.
With your donations this month we have been able to help 6 Palo Alto families with rent, to pay partial utilities for 5 families, purchase food for the daily food bags we hand out at the parish door, and to help people with basic transportation necessities, including one-time registration for known people living in their vehicles.
One man who had not been at our door for awhile showed us his notice that he is able to receive a kidney transplant in Sacramento if he has transportation to and from Sacramento and safe housing while there. The Kiwanis Club has arranged for his housing and your SVdP Conf. paid for his transportation.
We were also able to help a cancer patient at Stanford with some days of co-pay for local housing and with her considerable medicine expenses.
Your generosity makes it possible to provide help for these people, and the others at our door.
