Spring into Service
Spring into service this March by participating in the our Food Drive taking place the weekend of March 20-21, 2021.
Contact: Evelyn Collazo & Janice Ward at email
The Spring Food Drive is critical to the wellness of our neighbors helping to replenish the SVdP Food Pantry that serves Dunwoody and metro Atlanta. The continued impact of the COVID-19 crisis has left many of our parishioners and neighbors food insecure.
All food items are essential and appreciated, however the greatest need is canned meat, canned pasta and peanut butter and jelly. For additional items, reference the list of staples below. Please refrain from purchasing products in glass containers which create a safety hazard due to the potential for breakage in transport.
|High Demand Items||Other Essentials|
|Cereal||Spaghetti Sauce (plastic jars preferred)|
|Peanut Butter and Jelly||Crackers|
|Beef Ravioli – canned||Milk – canned or shelf stable milk, almond milk|
|Tuna – canned||Paper Towels|
|Chicken – canned||Hygiene products: soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, sanitary pads, shaving cream, body lotion|
|SpaghettiOs – canned||Canned vegetables|
Convenient & Safe Drive Thru Drop Off
Vincentian volunteers are committed to providing a safe environment to drop off your food donations. We are taking these precautions to maintain social distancing and contactless interactions:
- All Vincentian volunteers will be wearing masks as you approach the food donation station.
- There is no need to exit your car, simply pull up to the donation station and a Vincentian volunteer will remove the donated items from your trunk.
- Once complete, slowly exit the drive thru station.
- The drive-thru donation station will be located in the rear drive, in front of the Scout Hut on the All Saints Catholic Church grounds.
Drop Off Location and Hours
Vincentian volunteers will be available to collect your donations before and after masses.
Saturday March 20th from 2:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

St. Vincent de Paul continues to handle requests from our parishioners and the Dunwoody community seeking food and financial assistance. Your support is needed now more than ever. Here are other ways you can help as we honor shelter in place orders across Atlanta.
Your monthly contribution is a lifeline to those in need. With the suspension of public masses, we are unable to fulfill our collection the first Sunday of every month. If you are in a position to continue contributions, please remit your check payable to All Saints SVdP by mailing it to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, All Saints Catholic Church, 2443 Mount Vernon Rd., Dunwoody, GA 30338.
Most importantly, St. Vincent de Paul is here to support our parishioners and neighbors in need. If you require assistance at this time, please call our hotline at 770-512-7476, leave a message and you will be contacted by one of our volunteers.
St. Vincent de Paul Volunteer Information
Our members are involved with trying to follow our Lord’s dictate to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, care for the ill, visit the sick, soothe the unhappy and restore peace to the troubled soul. We do this primarily by visiting the needy in their homes. We meet as a group on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm. During the month we visit people whenever they need help.
