Follow along on social media for daily updates and even more ways for all of us to Shine by Sharing!

This summer, St. Vincent de Paul is asking the community to support us in our mission to  Feed,  Clothe,  House  and  Heal  for 100 Days of Summer. This seasonal campaign is dedicated to meeting the heightened summer needs of our most vulnerable neighbors when extreme heat threatens lives, utility bills increase, and families have more mouths to feed with kids out of school. 

It's people like you, near or far, who Shine by Sharing and help vulnerable Arizonans get through the season.

100 Days, Countless Ways to Shine by Sharing

For those without proper shelter, summers in Arizona can be deadly. In Maricopa County in 2021, at least 338 people died from heat-associated causes. As temperatures rise, we open our dining rooms across the Valley to provide emergency heat relief and shelter to those who need it.

Additionally, our transitional living facility, Ozanam Manor, provides shelter and programming to adults 50 and older, veterans, and people with disabilities as they seek permanent employment and housing.

These services are vital for individuals in vulnerable populations who may end up homeless during the summer season. Donate goods to help these individuals as they transition out of Ozanam Manor. Volunteer your time to help out at our emergency relief shelters.

At St. Vincent de Paul, we will never turn away an individual seeking a meal. But as summer months drag on and donations decline, our staple pantry items become scarce. We need your help to provide greatly needed items like canned proteins, peanut butter, dried pasta, canned fruits and vegetables and more.

This food helps us cook up thousands of nutritious meals in our kitchen and fill thousands of food boxes to deliver to families in need.

Help us in our mission to feed those in our community who need a hand, whether it be hosting a food drive or simply donating what you can.

WATER

Arizona has some of the hottest summers in the U.S. according to the Arizona Department of Health services, over 3,000 people visit the emergency room each year due to lack of water and excessive heat.

Those without proper shelter are the most susceptible to dehydration and heatstroke. This June, we're teaming up with ABC15 and Basha's to deliver water to our neighbors who are most affected. Starting June 1 through June 30, our Water Drive Station Initiative will provide water to those most at risk.

Donate at the PIN pad or purchase a case of water next time you visit a Basha's Food Store, or donate online through our Amazon Wishlist.

Summer usually brings higher utility and childcare costs, but the rising costs of food and housing are putting added pressure on family budgets. That's where St. Vincent de Paul food pantries around central and northern Arizona come in to help families keep food on the table.
