Review for Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County, Oakland, CA, USA
My family has a long history of volunteering for St. Vincent de Paul in Alameda County. My father served as a member for over 30 years at his parish. He made home visits to visit with people in need and would be a voice for them to obtain the help that they needed. He was the treasurer for many of those years and advocated for those in need. His favorite event was helping with the Thanksgiving baskets to be distributed. He always made sure that candy and dessert was included so that the families would have an enjoyable holiday. I know that he touched many lives with his involvement.
My father passed away 5 five years ago. Now my mother is a volunteer for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul dining hall in Oakland. Most Fridays she and a group of friends from the parish spend several hours in the morning doing whatever is needed to help feed the needy. She is very outgoing and kind so I know that her presence helps to feed their spirits as well.
St Vincent de Paul Alameda County is an amazing organization. They provide a much needed service to the needy of the area. They offer a place in the storm. They truly are doing God's work.
