St. Vincent de Paul Society
The St. Mary Help of Christians Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul serves the poor of our community by operating a free food pantry. The pantry, located at 138 Fairfield Street SE in Aiken, is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and Friday from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. We provide over 10,000 pounds of food and supplies each month to nearly 400 families representing well over 1,000 individual recipients. In addition, we provide limited emergency financial assistance when utilities are about to be cut-off and for filling essential prescriptions. More than 100 dedicated volunteers provide the hearts, hands, and funds to make this ministry possible.
Please consider visiting the pantry to see how you can help, either by volunteering your time and/or donating funds to this important outreach ministry. We have meetings on the first Monday of each month at 4:00 p.m. at Mother Teresa Hall, 125 Union Street SE. Please come and join our volunteer family.
