Books 4 Hope Donation Drive: St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Mateo (SVdP) can provide donation bins, and individuals and organizations can encourage community members, friends, family, students, and employees to fill them with unwanted books. Books may also be dropped off at any SVdP thrift store. Donated books are either gifted to children during home visits or sold. Revenue raised helps support SVdP’s programs. There is zero waste; all books are reused or recycled. To hold a donation drive, contact St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Mateo.

Keep Our Neighbors Warm:
The St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Mateo (SVdP) launches its “Keep Our Neighbors Warm” campaign to help the homeless. This winter, SVdP’s Homeless Help Centers will give out 1,500 cold-weather sleeping bags; distribute hats, gloves, scarves, socks, and underwear; issue vouchers for blankets and jackets; serve over 100,000 hot meals, and provide flu shots. Financial donations are crucial to the purchase of these necessities for our neighbors in need. Donations will be matched 100% by the Sobrato Family Foundation.

For more information about these St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Mateo County initiatives, please contact Kristen Trojel, (408) 420-0307
