Volunteer

Current needs!
Like that of its founder, Frederic Ozanam, the vision of The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, "is to embrace the world in a network of charity." We need you, to help us help others! In 2015, St. Vincent de Paul Appleton provided over $430,000 in merchandise and financial aid to help local families meet their basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, transportation, medical care and more. If you've been looking for an outreach opportunity where even a few hours of your time will matter...this is it! We hope you join our team, make new friends, enjoy the snacks and goodies in our break room and most importantly, feel good about volunteering to help our neighbors in need.
