gift cardGift cards for those in need
The Social Action Committee is requesting donations of $10 gift cards for St. Vincent de Paul from Walmart, Kroger, or Meijer for shelter residents transitioning to stable housing. They have a very large number of families moving through the shelter entering housing with very few needed supplies. These retailers are all located on bus lines, providing easy access for the shelter residents.  Please bring your gift card donations to the Temple office and Amy Margolin will take them to St. Vincent de Paul.
