The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an International Catholic organization of lay persons founded in Paris, France in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam. His challenge was to prove the practical value of his Christian beliefs. In the spirit of Justice and Charity, its members seek to help those who are in need. The society takes care of those in need of food, clothing and other necessities of life. The society members meet on a regular basis to enhance their own spirituality and to discuss how they can be of service. The work of the Society depends on the donations of the good people of our parish. 
 
If you would like to support the works of the SVdP Ministry that is active at Saint Gilbert Parish, there are several ways you can help.  Consider...
...praying right now for our volunteers and all those they serve -- our neighbors in need
...using the monetary donation boxes or the food pantry donation boxes in the narthex of the church.  
...placing a gift envelope marked "SVdP' in the regular collection basket or mail or drop off your gift at the Parish office (monetary
     or gift card donations for food and 'necessities' are very much appreciated.).
...a secure, online giving option, by using SVdP on Give Central
...joining the team and working directly with our neighbors in need or behind the scenes -- attend a monthly meeting which takes
     place on the third Monday of the month and discover more about the SVdP Ministry
...donating to or purchasing from the SVdP Thrift Store, 1125 S. Milwaukee, Libertyville, Illinois. The number is 847-367-4700.
