Saint Vincent de Paul Society at STA responds to the needs of the poor, the hungry, the sick and the homeless. We are volunteers who receive gifts from our generous family of donors at STA and distribute them to those in need. We maintain a call-in line ( 727-372-8600 ext. 142) to offer help with utility bills, rent payments, transportation, food and clothing.
We also operate a food pantry in our Parish Hall on Monday and Thursday from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. and from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Our officers are: President Janice Lattuca, Vice President Kem Cassella, Vice President Jack Timmins. Treasurer Gerard Donlon, Secretary Margaret Pistole, Recording Secretary Peg Duffner.
