Whenever Chuck Peters, president of the Hilbert St. Vincent de Paul Society conference, takes visitors through the organization's store, he gives the Lord credit for its success.

"The Lord has really been good to us," he says as he names the individuals and organizations who have donated merchandise, fixtures and time to the store on Highway 57 immediately south of Hilbert.
