Good afternoon everyone!
Yesterday we here at The Deli and Top of the Market had the pleasure to take 75 blankets that were made at our October Blanket Party to St. Vincent de Paul.
Rebecca Delong gave us a tour of the Gateway Shelter for Women and Familes and gave us some eye-opening information. St. Vincent de Paul provides 130,000 nights of shelter annually and provides 1,000 meals per day to the homeless in our community.
We encourage everyone to explore the volunteer opportunities available at St. Vincent de Paul (http://stvincentdayton.org/get-involved/volunteer-positions/) and if you would like to make a donation directly to the program, please visit https://stvincentdayton.org/donation-options/.
We would like to give special thanks to Jim Bucher and Jeff Klaene for filming the donation and putting together a video for us!
We would also like to give special thanks to Rebecca Delong and David Bohardt from St. Vincent de Paul for showing us around and giving us some insight into how big this issue is in our community.
If you would like to be a part of our Blanket Program, please email Jeremy Lewis at email@example.com for information on how you can become involved.
Again, a huge thank you to everyone involved with this program!
