07/09/2018–The M&M Area Community Foundation has started a “Friends of St. Vincent de Paul” fund.  A local, anonymous donor started the fund to support the mission of St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) Marinette.

Since 1922 SVDP Marinette’s mission has been to bring hope and a helping hand to people living in poverty.  Direct assistance programs include a food pantry as well as a voucher program for items at the Marinette store.  In addition, through job training, agency referrals, and coaching in financial management, SVDP Marinette works to break the generational cycle of poverty.

The Friends of St. Vincent de Paul fund will make annual distributions to support SVDP Marinette’s programs in perpetuity once it reaches $10,000.  For more information on donating to the fund, contact MMACF Executive Director Paula Gruszynski at 906-864-3599.
