St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee is an organization dedicated to the elimination of hunger and poverty in our community.

 
 
 

One Light, Many Candles

Featuring Noel Paul and Rev. Betty Stookey

A benefit program to provide basic needs for families such as beds, stoves, refrigerators and food in Milwaukee County through the St Vincent de Paul Society home visit and meal program.

A multi-faith program in word and song reflecting the diversity
and integrity of individual faith seeking a global spiritual community.

Elizabeth & Noel Paul Stookey have been working together for over 50 years, as husband and wife, as parents, as business partners and activists. Noel is a singer-songwriter and the “Paul” of Peter Paul and Mary. He has been writing songs that reflect on the political, cultural, sociopolitical and spiritual dynamics of all of our collected stories for decades. Betty is an ordained minister who has ministered and counseled many, including, as chaplain of a school, over a thousand students of many faiths ranging from Buddhist and Christian, to Muslim and Jewish.  See a YouTube video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJhJx648wHw

It's that time of the year again when we start to think about keeping the families we serve warm during the upcoming Winter months.  SVDP is collecting the following new or hand made items now, through the end of February:
Hats, Mittens, Gloves, and Scarves
 
All items will be distributed to our meal program guests and during our volunteer home visits.
Drop off items at our office location:  
9601 W Silver Spring Drive
Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm.    
Thank you so much for helping us keep children warm this winter!  
 
 A HUGE THANK YOU to All Who Supported The Backpack Drive! 
 
We want to extend a BIG Thank You to United Health Care, the customers of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores, our Vincentians & our wonderful St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store staff for their generosity!   With their help, we were able to provide 200 backpacks with much needed items (blankets, socks, hats, mittens, flashlights, hand warmers, snacks & hygiene products) to all of our meal guests on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day!
 
Making A New Year's Resolution? 
How About Making a Volunteer Service One! 

It's the time of year we make New Year's Resolution's. If you're looking to get more involved or make a difference ONE person at a time, this is a great way. One day a month will help.

We have 2 locations and Volunteers are Needed on the following days and times:
931 W. Madison Street:  Sunday - Friday 2 p.m. - 7 p.m.
2600 N. 2nd Street: (All People's Church) Tuesday - Saturday 3 p.m. - 7 p.m.

All you have to do is show up!

Or, if you or your group would like to do a drive, we can always use the following items for our Healing Waters Shower Program:
* Socks
* Underwear
* Hygiene Products
* Feminine Hygiene Products
* Men's Clothing
* Blankets
