Have you thought to yourself, “How can I help the poor and the struggling of this beautiful community?”

St. Vincent DePaul Society has a local group of volunteers who are committed here in Venice and Nokomis to helping individuals and families who are struggling to deal with the basics of daily life needing shelter, food, clothing, electricity, and more!  In many cases they are without the support of family and friends.

Join us, working in teams of two, in serving the needs of the less fortunate and sharing in the joy of being a Vincentian.  Volunteers are needed to:  respond to telephone messages, schedule appointments with clients, meet with them, assess their needs and help them find solutions to their problems.  Also we need help with recruitment of volunteers, and fund raising events.

Job requirements are simple:  Compassion, empathy, and a desire to help others.

If you feel like you can commit a few hours one day per week, please call us at 941-493-2027.

If you do not have the luxury of giving your time right now, maybe you can help by donating.
