Letter: Make a difference in our community

I would like to assure everyone, customers, contributors, etc., that we are all volunteers of St. Vincent de Paul thrift store and client services. The mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is to provide spiritual and physical support for all who are seeking our help. This includes food, clothing, living assistance and other programs, as well as offering compassion and support to all, regardless of race, origin, religion or gender.

Because of our volunteers and contributors, we are able to do what we can to serve all. If you are retired and tired of dusting and vacuuming and sitting on the front porch, come out and join a wonderful group of people who work on any day they choose. You will enjoy the camaraderie and feel very good about giving back to the community and you will surely be blessed.

Marlene Tidwell,

St. Vincent de Paul president
