Beginning in 2019, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul – St. Mary Conference, Sterling/Rock Falls began its relationship with United Way of Whiteside County. The collaboration between the two organizations was initiated in an effort to work together to better serve those in need in our communities of Whiteside County.
St. Vincent de Paul Society was designated and approved as an official agency partner of United Way of Whiteside County in 2020 and was awarded funding for the SVdP Food Pantry. Since this is an ongoing partnership, an application is filed each calendar year for funding from United Way of Whiteside County to help support the Food Pantry and Financial Aid Programs offered by St. Vincent de Paul Society.
United Way of Whiteside County and Society of St. Vincent de Paul are working together and making a difference in the lives of those in need, resulting in a better and stronger community.
