Make a Difference: St. Vincent de Paul Place
WHO: Carl, a 55-year-old man
AGENCY: St. Vincent de Paul Place
HIS SITUATION: With a sixth-grade education, Carl ran a successful handyman business for many years.

WHAT TO GIVE: Carl needs $2,400 to avoid losing his trailer and lot. Checks can be made payable to St. Vincent de Paul Place with “Carl Make a Difference” in the memo.
