Loose change placed in the cylinders at each church entrance goes to our St. Vincent de Paul Society Conference which assists people in our area who are in economic need. The St. Vincent de Paul Conference is St. Robert's main outreach to people in financial need. Members visit those who ask for help by providing some assistance (bus passes, grocery cards, or vouchers for clothing or furniture). Learn more at: St. Vincent de Paul Society. Milwaukee's St. Vincent de Paul Society is in need of volunteers to short, wash, and price items for resale. Please contact Beth at 462-7837.
For the past 30 years, St. Robert has sponsored a meal at St. Vincent de Paul (formerly St. Gall) on the first Thursday of every month. We are in need of three or four more volunteers to prepare baked chicken, either as a substitute or as a monthly cook. One of our cooks is retiring after 25 years and another is away. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Margaret Mathews Sankovitz at (414) 964-9138 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Poverty exists, although perhaps hidden at times, in St. Robert's neighborhood. Several times per month, the Parish Office or the Central Office of St. Vincent de Paul is contacted by people in our immediate area in need of financial help. The St. Vincent de Paul Conference is St. Robert's main outreach to people who are financially in need. Members visit those who ask for help and distribute gift cards to a local grocery store or bus passes, as needed. Currently there is a need for more members to help with this outreach. Interested? Call Neal Pease at 963-1098.
The mission of the Ladies of Charity in Miwaukee is to clothe
school-aged children in Milwaukee. School social workers
determine the clothing needs of a family and send them to
our store (39th & Hampton) with a voucher. Gently used furniture and household items in good condition may be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Please call Cindy at 462-7863 to schedule a pick up.
