A food forum was recently held to provide an opportunity for Vincentians to collaborate in round table discussions.
The purpose of this meeting was to seek out new ways to improve the acquisition,
storage and distribution of food by SSVP.
In addition to avenues worth exploring, the outcome of this meeting was the creation of a task force to further investigate these identified potential opportunities.
This year’s annual Sleep Walk was a success!
The total amount collected has not been finalized as monies continue to trickle in.
Thanks to all those who participated by walking or by supporting a walker.
Musical Musings was sensational this year.
A special thank you to the Toldo Foundation for their gift of $1,000.
It’s worth noting that they are not only philanthropists but they are musical talents as well.
The band rocked the house and was a highlight of the evening.
Assumption High School entrusted a portion of their hard earned collection to SSVP so that we in turn can help those who need it most right here in our local community.
Thanks to the students and staff at Assumption.
Your unrelenting dedication to the less fortunate continues to inspire us here at SSVP.
A recent fire at Society Shoppe at 1074 Wyandotte St E proved more than just a nuisance. It also caused damages to the building. We hope some of the costs can be recuperated. SSVP views this as a reminder to be vigilant about fire safety. It would be a shame for a potential hazard to impede our ability to serve those in need.

It is an event not to be missed – with a plethora of prizes and fun to be had.

The SSVP annual ReCycle Sale was once again, an awesome event.
This year the location was our new home at the former Blessed Sacrament church.
Free helmets were distributed with the purchase of a bicycle and other items (books, CD’s, clothing and more) were sold at unbelievably low prices.
It was wonderful to meet those of you who attended and
we hope to see you soon when we finally open our doors in West Windsor.
We continue to move forward at the former Blessed Sacrament church.
Teams of volunteers are committed to pushing this project forward
and we hope and pray for an early fall move-in date.
If you would like to help, please contact Central Office at 519-253-7481.
Our Windsor Essex Central Council Secretary, Penny Craig (also National President) assembled with other Vincentians from around the world in Rome. Our International counsel had a special audience with Pope Francis.
