Community Connections – Good News from Divine Providence Conference

Guardian Corps of America considers the good people who donate to the GCA mission extraordinary and very special. Approximately two (2) years ago Anthony E. La Piana, founder, and president of GCA was invited to speak before The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Divine Providence Church. The presentation was about the suffering and plight of our homeless veterans in the greater Chicagoland area. Shortly after GCA (La Piana) received communication from Jackie Wasielak, president of The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Divine Providence Church offering support for the GCA mission by donating hygiene products, clothing, non-perishable food, and other essential supplies.
Not long after GCA picked up the supplies at The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Divine Providence Church. La Piana said: “I will never forget that first day we picked up supplies from Jackie and her group. It was an incredible sight to see the abundance of brand-new products carefully organized. There was a lot of everything, including hygiene products, socks, caps, gloves, bottled water, and non-perishable food, which is what we requested. Ever since that day, Jackie makes it her business to contact GCA asking if the mission is in need of more supplies. She does all the organizing and instructs her group of donors on what is exactly needed. It is amazing how fast the supplies are ready for pick up after our request is made. All the people from The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Divine Providence Church are so wonderful to work with and truly compassionate and caring toward our homeless veterans.”
Guardian Corps of America would like to say Thank you to those who shopped and delivered the supplies to GCA. They are; Jackie W., president of The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Divine Providence Church, and Denise S.i, Hillary D., Jo Ann O., Susan M., and Dennis W. Jackie said: “The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Divine Providence Church mission is to help those in need, and the homeless veterans are those individuals we are proud to serve and supply them with the basic needs you ask us for. One of St. Vincent de Paul’s famous quotes: “Go to the poor: you will find God”
