Community Bank of Florida was pleased to make a donation supporting the upcoming fundraiser dinner hosted by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the Knights of Columbus. The dinner will be held on April 13, 2013 at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church Parish Hall and will include a silent auction. Funds raised will go towards feeding and assisting those in need in our community. In the past year, the local Society of St. Vincent de Paul has assisted over 250 families by offering emergency assistance and referrals of other resources available to them. These services help families stay together and prevent them from being separated from their loved ones.
About the Society: Vincent de Paul was a priest of the Catholic Church who dedicated himself to serving the poor. In 1845, the St. Vincent de Paul Society was formed and named after the patron saint with a mission of helping others. Today members of the Society are from all walks of life, but share one thing in common- the blessings they have (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with those in need.
Sacred Heart Catholic Church is located at 106 S.E. 1st Drive in Homestead. For more information about the fundraiser, or about the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, please contact Donna Silva, at 305-248-2142.
