Many St. Vincent de Paul chapters serve alongside their neighbors through the Bay Area. We respect all of their work and pray for them and those they serve. We all must work together to serve the most vulnerable in our communities. Here’s a story of service from SVdP Contra Costa County—

Michelle and her 5 grandchildren moved to California in the middle of a crisis. Her son, a bounty hunter, was killed on the job, and she had no choice but to take care of her family as best she could. Moving to the Bay Area to be with her relatives, it’s been hard on Michelle and the children. But this Christmas is a little brighter thanks to the help St. Vincent de Paul of Contra Costa County has been able to provide thanks to the Share the Spirit program!

We are very grateful to be able to help our neighbors in need thanks to the generous funding from our friends @contracostacrisiscenter and @bayareanewsgroupcompany .

This has been a hard year, as many people have had to seek help getting by that have never had to before. Whether it be the pandemic, recent fires, or other hardships weighing on our neighbors, non-profits have been a necessary lifeline for many in Contra Costa County this year.

Share the Spirit is an annual program of the Bay Area News Group - East Bay Times @ebtimes ,and is supported by readers of the newspaper. The goal of the Share the Spirit program is to enhance the holiday season for those in need in Contra Costa County.

Thank you for all you do for those in need! Together we can end poverty one person, one family, one community at a time.

Longtime volunteer Adele has been a pillar of our team for years. We can count on her for her knowledge of our facility, thoughtfulness and willingness to work. Adele goes above and beyond for our guests and has formed relationships with many of them. She even helped organize a “career closet” full of professional clothing for when our guests need an interview or special occasion outfit. Adele brings her kind heart and infectious smile to SVdP often. What is your favorite part about volunteering? Join us, as we make more cherished memories and connections with the St. Vincent de Paul community in Oakland.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LRViRNJeX0 Antichrist is a Loser! We Will Defeat the Beast!
My name is Rickell Williams and I have a slight problem. Regional 1 Representative Janet has a son who is security at the dinning hall. I have a service dog and went there to eat. Security told me that I need to take my service dog outside. I told him I don't have to. He went to check and brought his mom, who is Regional 1 Representative and told me that she was his mom. She did asked me the right question the first time, but then she said let me see the animals papers, I told her that was the wrong question... The hold time I was talking to her, her son was saying "thats my mind mom". We finished our talk and I was trying to talk to her son telling him I didn't disrespect her. He kept saying "that's my mom" and that was the only thing he was saying. Like I did something wrong. Now I am afraid of going to the dinning hall. In my opinion I think a parent in charge and a child should not work under the same roof, Yes work for St. Vincent De Paul but split apart. Now I have to find another way to get the right nutrition for my diabetes. I'm too old and disabled to fight, let alone fear for my life. I wish that St. Vincent De Paul would retrain their staff with the ADA Service Dog Laws(too many complaint from others w/service dogs) and split parents and children working together. I don't know what to do with the situation, any help from the Society of St. Vincent De Paul would be accepted. God Bless.
