Volunteerism is alive and working in Dearborn County. In addition to those profiled in last week’s paper, St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry has been another prime example for 22 years.
We are located in the basement of 210 Fifth Street (rear of the building) in Aurora.
The pantry serves those in need regardless of creed, ethnic or social background.
On average we serve 524 people per month from Dearborn, Ohio, Ripley, and even Switzerland counties.
All of the donations, both monetary and food comes from individuals, churches, schools, community groups, and businesses.
This year we are again participating in the Feinstein Challenge. It runs from March1 to April 30. It challenges non-profit agencies to collect money and food to help feed the hungry of the nation.
The amount of money the pantry receives depends on how many agencies around the country take part and how much the pantry raises in money/food. The more donations received the more money the pantry could receive from the Feinstein Foundation.
To make a donation, please send it to St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, c/o St. Mary Church, 203 Fourth Street, Aurora, IN 47001.
For more information, please call 812-926-1637. We are an example of what a community can do to help their neighbors.
