Seasonal Programs

We’re busy helping all year

Our seasonal outreach programs are designed to help meet the needs of our neighbors throughout the year. The programs include:

Fall/Winter

Coat Distributions

Are you in need of a coat to keep warm this winter? Each year, we distribute hundreds of coats to our neighbors.

You may come to the Neyer Outreach Center at 1146 Bank Street to request a coat voucher to any of our thrift stores. Open to Hamilton County residents. Must bring valid ID for each neighbor receiving a coat.

Fall

Thanksgiving Food Distribution

Thanksgiving is a time to gather with loved ones around the dinner table, sharing our gratitude and joy with those who mean the most. To help with this holiday tradition, St. Vincent de Paul distributes Thanksgiving food boxes, each including a turkey and all the fixings.

Any neighbor in need is eligible to participate in the Thanksgiving Food Distribution. There is no need to sign up in advance, although a photo ID is required on the day of the distribution, and neighbors will be asked to complete a TEFAP form to receive food.

Winter

Christmas Gift Programs

St. Vincent de Paul offers several Christmas gift programs for families in need. Families are invited to apply for these programs. Applying does not guarantee a spot in one of our programs, and participants are chosen based on their application, not on a first-come, first-served basis. You are eligible to receive assistance every other year.

Winter

Christmas Food Distribution

Presents under the tree is often the highlight of Christmas day, but the Christmas dinner with family can’t be forgotten, and to help St. Vincent de Paul hands out everything needed for a good meal—fresh produce, all the fixings, plus a ham or a turkey.

Spring/Summer

Fan and A/C Distribution

The 2023 Fan and A/C Distribution window is closed. Please check back in spring for more information regarding the upcoming 2024 Summer Heat Relief program.
