The St. Vincent de Paul Society would like to thank Charlie at the Valley Paint Center for donating the paint and supplies to remodel two kitchens at the St. Vincent de Paul Society. These building improvements helped make our transitional housing facility a more welcoming place for our residents.

We would also like to thank Mrs. Chapman and her students from JDHS who spent Friday and Saturday doing an outstanding job painting our kitchens for National Youth Service Day.

Your enthusiasm and hard work brought life and color to our facility!
