Dear Friends of the Poor, Elderly, and Homeless
On Christmas Day, St. Peter’s/St. Vincent de Paul Society will host the Thirty-Second Annual Christmas dinner for approximately 800 men, women, and children from around the Columbia area.
The dinner will be served from 11:00 AM—1:00 PM in the Parish Life Center at 1529 Assembly St. Each guest will received a duffel bag stuffed with a hooded sweatshirt, thermal underwear, wool gloves, boxer short, and toiletries, provided by Red Bank Baptist Church St. Peter’s Five-0-Plus Club, and Transfiguration Church. For the little ones from the shelters, we hope to provide toys from Toys for Tots, a Target gift card, and a stocking full of goodies, provided by St. Peter’s Women Sodality, and plus a BIG surprise this year.
If you have not cleaned out your closet lately, our guests could use winter coats or sweaters. Also, if you would like to “Adopt-a-Gift Bag” for $10.00, please contact Robert Keeder at 796-9802 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or make checks payable to St. Vincent de Paul Society, 1529 Assembly St. Columbia, SC 29201.
