Thanks from your St Vincent de Paul Manly Vale Conference

Your Vinnies members wish to thank so many people for their support.  Firstly, the Winter Appeal raised $11,600, including  one generous donation of $5,000 and that will keep us operating for 6 months.  Secondly, our  wonderful St Kieran’s School raised $1,072 as well as donating a magnificent collection of tinned food—over 1,200 items.  The First Communion group chipped in with donations of much needed blankets.Last week the request for good used clothing resulted in 4 carloads of bags which will boost Vinnies shops and fund their support for the needy.  The demand for help never slackens and in coming weeks Vinnies will highlight the plight of our drought-stricken farmers.  Thanks again for your never ending support.
