HOW YOUR DONATIONS ARE USED
WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1980 by the Sisters of Mercy and the Catholic Diocese of Norwich, St. Vincent De Paul meets the needs of the poor and homeless in greater Middletown, Connecticut. A four-pronged mission, St. Vincent's provides nutritious meals through our community Soup Kitchen and connects people to basic support services and emergency funds through our Community Assistance Program. We also operate the Amazing Grace Food Pantry and a Supportive Housing Program serving individuals with disabilities.
IN THE NEWSTwo hundred soup kitchen guests enjoyed a festive Christmas dinner recently. Our wonderful chef Jeremiah Rufini (black apron) and his crew provided a sumptuous meal baked salmon, pork and gravy, potatoes, salads, mixed vegetables. Staff musician Dave Downs lead carols on guitar. Executive director Ron Krom congratulated Terry Carbone for 30 years of service at St. Vincent de Paul. We thank First Church of Christ for donating the space.

People in the Central Connecticut area facing homelessness should call 211 for assistance. Read about the new system With your group's help, Sunday breakfasts will be served at St. Vincent de Paul's Soup Kitchen all fall and winter long. Organizers are looking for groups to provide a Sunday breakfast about once a month at the Soup Kitchen from 7 a.m.to 9 a.m. All you need is a small team, your own breakfast foods to bring in, prepare and serve (eggs, coffee, juice, toast) and paper goods. Someone who knows the ropes can come in and help you if you'd like assistance on your group's day. St. Pius X Church and First Congregational Church have committed to a number of dates, but there are still gaps. Please contact Brian Rarey 860-573-4862 for more information and to reserve your group's date.
