Giveaway at St. Vincent helps 400 local families

stvcclogoSt. Vincent Catholic Charities and the Detroit Pistons made life a little less stressful and a bit more brighter for about 400 families Tuesday morning.
Volunteers distributed 1,200 boxes of nonperishable food and personal hygiene items to families in financial need at St. Vincent Catholic Charities in Lansing.

Some of those items included macaroni and cheese, toilet paper, canned foods, shampoo and perfume.

"These are the days we live for," said Julie Reynolds, community relations and marketing director for St. Vincent. "Being able to share and help those in need is what it's all about."

The project was made possible by the Detroit Pistons organization, which raised $450,000 for Feed the Children, an international, nonprofit relief organization, during the Pistons Care Telethon in March.

The funds are being distributed to 25,000 needy families throughout Michigan this year, including Tuesday's stop in Lansing.
