St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store Mission Statement

The St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store is volunteers dedicated in serving our needy brothers and sisters. All who come to our store are welcomed with dignity and respect. Our hope is they leave as friends and return to shop with us again. Those who cannot afford clothing and household items are provided them through a Vincentian referral system in conjunction with Project Timothy and other services in town.

St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store is a place where people receive not only the goods they need, but a place where compassion, friendship, love, and a smile are freely given to one and all. We have many dedicated volunteers both Catholic and Christian who work extremely hard to serve their neighbor and make the store a pleasant place to visit.

Serving Christ’s needy is the primary goal of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Store. In this ministry, we pledge to use sound business practices. Surplus funds will be dedicated to the support of Parish Conference and charitable causes of the Society approved by our Council and Board of Directors.

Volunteers are always needed to work a few hours a week.

“You are the servants of the poor… They are your masters, and the more difficult they will be, the more unjust and insulting, the more LOVE you must give them. It is your Love alone that the poor will forgive you the bread you will give them.”
