In the years following the Vietnam War, many Vietnamese citizens immigrated to the United States, and a large number of families settled in Vancouver and Clark County.  In those early years of their residence in our area, we were able to help many Vietnamese families with food, clothing, holiday food boxes, and  new coats and shoes for children.  Since then, the number of Vietnamese families coming to us for assistance has greatly declined as they were able to assimilate and become successful in the community.

In October of 2011, a representative of the Vietnamese Community of Clark County came to the St. Vincent dePaul office and gave us a check for $3188. She said that the donation was a "Thank you" for the assistance that we had given to Vietnamese families when they were in need.
