Ignatius House St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving meals

We’ve reached our Goal!  Thank you for donating!

Your donation is about to provide hot wholesome meals, prepared by Ignatius House chefs, to the homeless through St. Vincent de Paul Georgia.

An extraordinary number of families need support this season. Yet, with pandemic social distancing still underway, both Ignatius House and St. Vincent de Paul must adapt how they serve the community.

Social distancing at Ignatius House means our retreat center and kitchen chefs are less busy. Social distancing at St. Vincent de Paul means a high-demand Thanksgiving Dinner for the homeless can’t be held in person around a community table.

With one gift, you’ve helped two charities feed the hungry this Thanksgiving. Ignatius House chefs now are preparing 100 hot, wholesome Thanksgiving meals for St. Vincent de Paul clients. Meals will be packaged as individual servings of turkey with all the trimmings in a ready-to-go container and provided to the homeless at St. Vincent de Paul Georgia headquarters in Chamblee. Together, we’re bringing comfort, compassion, and nutrition to metro Atlanta’s homeless families.

 

Although this campaign has ended, we welcome any way you’d like to support our missions:

For Those Whose Harvest is Poor

Creator God, for daily bread
and all who work
to bring your harvest home,
we bring our thanks today.

Forgive our ingratitude,
we who have so much
yet waste what you have given.

For those whose harvest is poor,
whose crops have withered,
water tainted, children starve,
help those who bring relief
and bestow on us
an unaccustomed generosity,
that all might share from your garden
and all might sing your praise.

Creator God, provider of all,
we bring our thanks today.
