At the end of each August we always make time to help out with the St. Vincent de Paul Backpack Project.
The parishioners of St. Matthew have donated school supplies for over a month now, and St. Vincent de Paul had taken names of over 80 kids who are in need of full backpacks. It's so much fun every year to be the worker bees for this worthy cause. This year we only stayed to fill the packs; in years past we also distributed them to the clients.
Good job, kids!
