SVdP Receives Grant From Evansville Endowment Fund

SVdP Executive Director Vicki Eichmiller (middle) receives the grant award with two City of Evansville Endowment Fund Board Members.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul – Evansville is pleased to announce we were selected as a grant recipient from the City of Evansville Endowment Fund.  The grant amount of $16,800 will be used to assist in creating more adequate parking surrounding the SVdP Food Pantry located on the corner of Lafayette Avenue & Governor Street.

This project will enhance the usefulness of the currently poor condition of the two lots located in the “Promise Zone,” and provide a long term solution to an otherwise deteriorating location.  Converting the two empty lots on Governor Street to a parking area will provide volunteers and those we serve a more safe and convenient place to park their vehicles while at the pantry.

The Food Pantry provides food to approximately 2,569 individuals in 1,141 families each month.
