Louse D. Park Eye Fund

A special fund for North Georgia United Methodists offers help to those who are in need of eye-related care. The Louise D. Park Eye Fund is available to provide assistance for care which will diminish the likelihood of blindness – for instance cataract and macular degeneration treatment.

Pastors are encouraged to inform low income persons, retired pastors, and others who might need help with eye care costs of this available assistance.

Guidelines that govern usage of the fund are below. Louise D. Park Eye Fund grants are disbursed quarterly for actual treatment of patients who are in demonstrable need of financial assistance in order to secure treatment. Those interested in applying for the fund may contact the Conference Benefits Office at, or the Conference Treasurer’s Office at, or call 678-533-1399.

Although grants are available to all persons, first priority is given to grants recommended by a United Methodist clergy person.

The SVdP Society is a Catholic organization of lay people who seek in a spirit of justice and charity to help those who are suffering. Our special mission is to help those in need on a person to person basis.

We help them by providing food, clothing, and shelter; by assisting them to provide those necessities for themselves. We also help by trying to remove the obstacles that stand in their way.

It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. This aid may take the form of intervention, consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service.

An essential precept of the Society’s work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.

How can YOU help?
Come and join us at our meetings. You have been called to serve…
Be an active part of our ministry; your help and support is needed.
Together we can make a difference…
Donated Cars can help a family with transportation needs and relieve a family’s financial burden. Salvage cars provide a source of revenue to assist our clients. Contact us if you would like to donate a car.

Pantry visits are by appointment only. To schedule a pantry visit, call the SVdP Helpline 770-552-6400 Ext. 6105. A member of our SVdP Society will contact you within 24 hours.

If you would like to volunteer, please print the VOLUNTEER APPLICATION and send to or drop off at the parish office.

Proceeds from the sale of donated items become the funds necessary to assist our clients with their needs. Clients can receive free or at a reduced rate: clothing, furniture, household items.
