Walk for the Poor

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul sponsors the Friends of the Poor Walk in cities all across the country to raise funds for needy individuals and families. Locally, our St. Margaret Mary Conference will hold the walk on September 9 in Algonquin. We will start and end at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church and make our way through the neighborhood and down the bike path.

Mobile Food Truck

TBA from 4-6 pm (at St. Monica’s in Carpentersville)
We again will provide a mobile food truck in conjunction with St. Mary’s of Huntley, so we will need to provide volunteers starting at 3 pm.

Thanksgiving Baskets

Be sure to bring oranges and pumpkin pies to church on Sunday, November 20th.  These are put into community baskets – many of our Friends in Need (FINs) are recipients.

Winter Fundraiser

We will have a table set up at the East side Jewel to promote SVDP and take donations on Saturdays 11/19 and 12/10.  Let us know if you can help cover the table.

Soup Sales!

Starts Oct. 22-23, plus we will also be selling soup Nov. 19-20 and Dec. 10-11.
We will also be selling soup in Huntley at the First Congregational Church bazaar on 11/12 and the Kris Kringle Market on 12/3-4.

Christmas Giving Tree

Be sure to take a tag from the tree, as many of our FINs benefit from this wonderful holiday event.  Also feel free to drop gift cards in the poor box, as we distribute them as well.

SHAMROCK SHAVE

The evening of Saturday, March 11, 2017 (at St. Margaret Mary’s School)
Put it on your calendar.  As the largest fund-raiser of SVDP, we need all hands on deck that day and night.  In addition, committee meetings will be starting in the next couple of months, and we have some slots open, so please let Jonna Burck know if you would like to join the committee.

ST. JOSEPH’S TABLE

Would anyone like to help coordinate this annual March event?
Lenten luncheon for the whole parish – we invite our Friend’s in Need and need help to prepare for this event that honors St. Joseph.

OZANAM ORIENTATION

next April
This event is for those SVDP members who want to become active members and do home visits. We just finished our “year” and as a conference, went on 113 Home visits.  Let us know if you would like to help us out with that.
