A five-thousand-dollar grant will benefit more than two dozen low-income residents in our area. The St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marinette was awarded the money by the National Council of the US Society of St. Vincent de Paul for a new Marinette District Systemic Change Program. The funds will support the organization’s “Getting Ahead” program which teaches participants the critical financial tools needed to stay out of poverty, a systemic change workshop for local volunteers, and job training for ten employees referred to St. Vincent de Paul through various community agencies. The grant was one of forty awarded across the country.
