Calling all SVdPLA Conferences to help with Bundle Sundays

It may be a new year, but the needs are just as great, if not greater, than in 2010!

Parishes in the counties of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara are needed to help the Society of St. Vincent de Paul help the less fortunate through its BUNDLE SUNDAY program!

Parish members can easily support the program by donating their discards of usable clothing, household goods and misc. small items - as well as rags and newspapers - when they attend Mass on a scheduled Bundle Sunday. *Please note that this collection is for small items only, and that a free pick-up of large donations (furniture, appliances & electronics) can be made by calling 323-224-6280 or 800-97-HELP-1.

Donations serve two purposes: First - They are given to families in extreme-need through the Society's free distribution progam; Second - They are resold in St. Vincent de Paul's thrift stores to help fund the Society's outreach programs. In either case, YOU are helping the less-fortunate and improving the local economy!

Information: 323-224-6274.
