  Feds Feed Families Campaign  

Needles Society Security Office participated in the "2015 Feds Feed Families Campaign". They collected over 10 cases of water and 20 boxes of food and gave the donated items to St. Vincent de Paul. St. Vincent has a large network and we know the food will go to the people in need.

All Federal agencies, including Field components, are asked to participate in the campaign. The field agencies will share their collections with their local food banks with the goal of ensuring that the FFF campaign will stretch across America and be visible and active in every state.
      The population of Needles is 4,830 with the closest city in California approximately 145 miles away (Barstow). 58% of Needles residents are on some sort of public assistance. 35% of our clients come from Arizona and 7% are transients. 
Mission Statement
We are a Catholic lay organization of Christians and concerned citizens following the spirit and example of St. Vincent de Paul.  It is God's desire that we be universally loving of the poor.  We are helping the less fortunate among  us  and  challenging  our  community  in  their responsibility to the social problems that exist in our local area.

"No work of charity is foreign to the Society."  Need, not creed determines who is helped, and how.

Love of God, self and neighbor 
Service to others 
Respect for life
