St. Vincent De Paul Society Naples No Neighbor Left Behind
Serving Collier County for over 50 years!
Dear Friend and Neighbor,
As Vincentian volunteers, we are guided to follow the five key virtues from our Patron Saint, St. Vincent de Paul: simplicity, humility, selflessness, gentleness, and zeal. While the past several years have been beyond challenging, I remain inspired to serve because of your kindness and generosity as we support our neighbors in need. As I began my service in 2019, I declared it the “Year to Volunteer.” And, my friends and fellow Vincentians in Naples, Marco Island, and Bonita Springs heeded the call. We currently have more than 600 dedicated volunteers empowering those in need!
As the COVID-19 pandemic set in, we saw an increase in assistance requests. With your donation of time and financial resources, we gave much-needed aid to more than 18,000 people. Among those we saw included an average of 70 people per day in our Choice Food Pantry and 150 people per day through Meals on Wheels.
While we have made much progress, there is more work that needs to be done. I invite you to learn more about our programs so that you can help us ensure that no one goes hungry and that we can keep struggling families afloat during difficult times.
-Joe Granda President, Naples District Council
