Join PADC for a MLK Day of Service at St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP)
Update on MLK Day of Service Volunteer Opportunity at St. Vincent de Paul:
Unfortunately, next Monday’s volunteer opportunity at St. VIncent de Paul has been canceled due to a COVID outbreak.
In lieu of in-person service, please consider making a donation if you are able to do so. Below are donation links for St. Vincent de Paul and Alameda County Community Food Bank, both of which have substantially increased need at this time:

In addition to our annual celebration, this year PADC will be honoring Dr. Martin Luther King by encouraging a day of service.
About St. Vincent de Paul:
The St. Vincent de Paul Conference of Alameda County in Oakland was established in 1938 and has a long history of service within the Bay Area. Members of the Council, known as Vincentians, serve those in need in their neighborhoods by collecting and distributing funds for eviction prevention, utility bills, and medical costs, providing clothing and furniture, and stocking church food pantries. Today, over 800 Vincentian volunteers, across 37 parishes in Alameda County, provide assistance for over 100,000 people a year. Programs at the Oakland location include an overnight shelter, food assistance, job training, and the Community Center, where clients have access to showers, a hot meal, laundry facilities, the Clothing Closet, Wellness and Podiatry Clinics, and referrals to additional services.
