Food prices in communities north of the 60th parallel can be exorbitant and further enshrine communities in poverty, which is a major concern in the north. Over the years, as part of its mission, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) has developed an innovative approach of:
- reaching out and establishing contacts in remote communities north of the 60th parallel;
- identifying their needs;
- gathering non-perishables and other day-to-day household supplies and other articles required;
- arranging sea containers to deliver these gathered products.
Blessed Sacrament Parish SVdP is looking to help by collecting:
