Southwest Idaho Council
For over 40 years, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has sponsored an annual Thanksgiving food box outreach program for those in need in Ada County. This is a family-to-family act of charity. Families share the tradition of Thanksgiving by preparing food boxes and giving them to other families in need.
All seven Boise and Meridian Catholic parishes plus a number of congregations of our Protestant and LDS friends participate in this project. This is an opportunity for families to help families in need.
Last fall, we distributed more than 2,200 turkeys with all the fixings for a complete Thanksgiving dinner for four to six people. We expect a record number of requests this year. We need your help to meet this need.
