Are you ready to give some time in service to Our Lord? There is no better place than St. Vincent De Paul Society and/or Thrift Store. In the Store, you can serve as little as one hour a week, or more if you prefer: we need folks to accept donations, to sort clothes and housewares, and to serve as cashiers. Vincentians (members of the Society) are part of a network of 800,000 lay Catholics worldwide inspired by Gospel values to grow in holiness and build a more just world through personal relationships with and service to people in need.
Pease stop by our store at 1300 Benner Pike, take a tour of our facility, and learn more about volunteering in the Thrift Store or becoming a Vincentian.
Here We Grow Again!
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is pleased to announce that an expansion of its Thrift Store will be completed by the end of Aptil. The retail space of the Store will increase by 25%. The Store relocated to its 1300 Benner Pike facility just two years ago, a move that enhanced the organization’s mission to help the poor.
In recent weeks, the Society offices and meeting room moved into an adjacent section of the building. We are now in process of taking over the vacated offices/meeting room area, which will allow a larger housewares sales area—a much needed improvement, since the Store will then be able to accept more housewares donations.
The Society believes the expanded retail space will provide more proceeds to help those in need—funds that will be indispensable in helping our county recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Society would like to thank the many donors who make our mission to help those in need in our community possible. Your donations of gently used clothing and housewares, as well as financial contributions, make it possible for the Society to help (on the average) 150 adults and children every month.
Starting in April, the Thrift Store will be open Monday-Saturday 10AM-4PM. The Store plans to remain open during the reorganization of the retail space. More volunteers are needed, especially cashiers and donations greeters—if you are interested in joining our family of volunteers, please call 814-867-3131 and talk to or leave a message for the store manager.
New Donations Door
We are pleased to share with you that we are now accepting donations at the back door of our new building. Follow the parking lot around to the left of the building, and the door is at the back left corner. Please back into the space in front of the door to unload your items. When your donation is complete, please exit through our parking lot (the unpaved driveway behind our area is private property and is not available for our use).
Thrift Store Move
We are so excited to share with you that our move to 1300 Benner Pike is complete, and we had a wonderfully successful Grand Re-Opening on Saturday, January 12.
The retail area of our new space is 55% bigger than the old space, so there is more merchandise than ever. And we now have a meeting/classroom--watch for information on DIY and craft classes.
