BR A N D AV E. ST U DIOS CON T EN T Help your neighbors in need this holiday season Sponsored content provided by Laura Strom, Brand Ave. Studio contributing writer Susan, 56, lives in a small home in the St. Louis area with her son, who is disabled, and her daughter. Both Susan and her son have serious health issues. These physical problems prevent Susan from working full-time at her job. Trying to help provide for the family, Susan’s daughter divides her time taking college courses, helping her mom, caring for her brother and working a part-time job. Unfortunately, even with two sources of income, Social Security and employment, Susan earns very little per month, not enough to pay all the bills while caring for her son. Her constant dilemma is which of her bills receive priority to be paid; she is simply unable to stay current on all her monthly debts. After juggling those expenses, there is not much left over for utilities, food and other household costs. Neighbors helping neighbors. That’s what the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is all about – the organization provides food, shelter, clothing, medicine, pays for utilities and more for people in need throughout the St. Louis region. Home visits from volunteer members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul help assess and determine the needs for those they serve. The organization takes time to learn what neighbors need and offer meaningful help through the thrift stores and a variety of other programs. Go to svdpstlouis.org to donate and give to your neighbors in need this holiday season and throughout the year. All donations and volunteer efforts benefit people in neighborhoods right here in the St. Louis region. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is one of the oldest and well-respected charities in St. Louis since 1845. Volunteer members follow Christ’s call to serve the poor, the suffering and the deprived.
