Fr. Ron has been a champion of our St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Isidore and we appreciate all his and the St. Isidore staff’s support during this pandemic. We are continuing our outreach program of helping our neighbors in need with rent and utility payments. We have recently helped a senior citizen and three families with five children with rent and eviction notices (that were in process prior to the hold on evictions). All of them were affected by recent layoffs.
Macomb Charitable (helping children who are homeless or living below poverty level) partnered with us to help one of our families since children were involved. We partner with several community and county organizations, Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and other SVdP Societies when rent or utilities are too high for us to handle alone. We are hopeful that stimulus and unemployment monies will cover most expenses of our neighbors in need, however, we are here to help as much as possible.
Food Pantry Update: Since March 12th we have helped 54 families and 229 people. The food pantry is open and families can call the office during the week to request food. We are trying to keep the pantry stocked by ordering online and doing limited grocery shopping. We know that it is difficult to get certain items right now but the list below shows the items we are critically low on. If you would like to contribute to the pantry it is best to drop off food or other items at the church weekday mornings. Call the church office when you arrive so they can accept the delivery.
We would like to thank all those who have been supporting us with food and money donations, we couldn’t continue our mission in serving others without you!
