Not on USM's main campus? No problem!

We'll place a bin in the lobby of the Overland Park Campus.

And for online students, we suggest that you make a food or cash donation to a local food pantry in your community.

What is #BeAVincent?

In the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul's service, we want YOU to give a shout out to your classmates who lend a helping hand, such as:


  • Helping a classmate with homework
  • Holding the door
  • Picking up litter
  • Helping someone carry a heavy load
  • ... and the list goes on; what will YOU do to #BeAVincent?

As you see kind acts, share them on Twitter and/or Instagram using #BeAVincent; we'll be awarding gift cards to BOTH the person DOING the act and the person POSTING the act throughout the week!

Can't make it to the party?
