Organizations/Groups affiliated with our parish
St. Vincent de Paul -The Society provides practical assistance to those in need on a person to person basis including home visits and referrals to other agencies. We have specific office hours (Tuesday and Thursday 1:00pm-3:00pm) and are located in the parish office where we provide assistance with food and clothing. We also use this office space as a referral point to our "on call phone". Food and monetary donations are solicited from the parish. Contact SVdP at (916) 989-7400.
Laundry Love - Laundry Love does laundry for people who are struggling financially. For those living in poverty, washing clothes presents both a logistical problem and a financial hardship. The guests, on average, will save over $20 per visit. Guests can apply their savings toward food, gas, medicines, and other essentials. They use the entire laundromat for the full three hour period. But, the operation is managed well, and everyone gets served, gets snacks, and becomes friends and neighbors.
FREE Wash/Dry, Second Saturday of each month 8:00 to 11:00 AM.
