Hurricane Michael will hit land on October 10, 2018, following Hurricane Florence’s devastation and destruction and both are among the strongest storms to strike the Southeast in decades.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) formed the Disaster Services Corporation (DSC), a national organization, specifically to aid local SVdP Councils in responding quickly and effectively to natural and manmade disasters. Your donation today will help to support the SVdP DSC with resources to respond to Hurricanes Florence and Michael and other disasters across the United States. Thank you if you have already made a donation and for your continued support. Please pray for those impacted by these hurricanes.

The Disaster Services Corp., St Vincent de Paul USA is calling for your help to purchase hygiene kits for disaster victims! Hurricanes Florence and Michael battered the Southeast and recovery will take many months. We need to replenish our hygiene supplies for these and other impending disasters.
Personal hygiene kits are always in need to keep up with the disasters in the U.S. alone! Through this campaign, we would like to raise 10,000 kits for disaster victims. These hygiene kits have been customized for Disaster Services Corp., St Vincent de Paul USA and include items for specific age groups (e.g., a backpack and stuffed animal for kids).
The hygiene kits will be distributed by SVdP Disaster Services Corp. to disaster survivors.
Thank you for your support and generosity!
