One of the most highly valued characteristics of Winters is in the ways in which we support each other and care for each other in times of need. When community groups come together to support a common purpose, the entire community benefits. Caring and sharing are the guiding principles of St. Vincent de Paul and the Winters Senior Foundation. While seniors are sheltering in place, we are still concerned about the welfare of members of our community who are in need. The WSF lends its support to St. Vincent de Paul’s Giving Program. On June 10, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the St. Anthony Parish Hall parking lot, members of the St. Vincent DePaul local chapter will lend support to 100 community members who are out of work, working families with children, and seniors who are not receiving assistance from other sources. This “drive – through” program will be a “first-come-first-served” and will hand out bags filled with: ~Toothpaste and brushes. ~Liquid and bar soap. ~Dish soap. ~Laundry detergent. ~Shampoo and conditioner. ~Body lotion. ~Toilet paper and Kleenex. ~Hand sanitizer and paper towels (if available). Census data matters The WSF spirit doesn’t stop with giving. They also provide valuable information about the resources available in our community. To ensure our community receives its fair share of the funds needed for those resources, we need to get an accurate count of the number of people who live in Winters and the surrounding area. The 2020 Census is the way we achieve an accurate count. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and our community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. Our community members need to be counted in order to receive the correct amount of funding to serve our area. Everyone counts, if you have not received your Census package yet, please contact the Winters Senior Foundation at 707-497-7289 or We will make sure that you receive the Census material by mail. You can also complete your census form online at Let’s all be counted so that our community can be served.]]>
