St. Vincent de Paul needs your help during this winter season! As temperatures continue to drop shelters around Louisville are starting Operation White Flag. This is an initiative to get as many homeless people off the streets as possible and into warm conditions. St. Vincent de Paul is opening our doors to any homeless person in need of overnight shelter anytime the wind chill gets below 35 degrees.

We are currently asking for volunteers to help us by assisting in Operation White Flag. Volunteers would be checking in the homeless during the times of 6pm-10pm when Operation White Flag is administered. St. Vincent de Paul staff and community are in great need of your help. This is a wonderful opportunity to view homelessness first hand and to help your local community for a great cause.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Beth White at 502-272-2134; This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - As temperatures drop back into the 20s, homeless shelters across Louisville are starting Operation White Flag. Anytime the wind chill gets below 35 degrees, shelters open up their doors to allow everyone in. John Ritchie is homeless, but Sunday night he found a bed at St. Vincent de Paul. "When it gets down cold enough, it could be life or death,” Ritchie said.

"It's important because it saves lives,” Linda Romine, St. Vincent de Paul’s communications director, said. “White Flag was instituted by the Coalition for the Homeless to prevent homeless people from sleeping on the streets and freezing to death."

We need your help to get a new truck for our Open Hand Kitchen and St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry. The truck we have used to pick up donations is no longer fit for use. Sternberg Automotive has issued a $5,000 challenge grant to help us raise the funding needed.
