Happy New Year

Jan 6, 2022

We would like to take this time to say THANK YOU to you for their support. We understand that this time is difficult for everyone, but you have made it possible for us to continue our work. Our food bank has seen an increase in Neighbours looking for help; it has also seen an increase in the generosity from our community. This Christmas season, we received so much food it took volunteers nine hours over two days to sort! This is incredible. 

We are doing everything in our power to create a safe and healthy environment for shoppers and staff, as well as our clients at the food bank. We have plexiglass dividers, reduced the number of shoppers and staff and have an environmentally friendly, chemical free agent that we use at the end of each day. 

We encourage all to stay home if they are not well and only handle merchandise you are going to purchase. All donations are quarantined and thoroughly cleaned before being available for purchase. If you have any questions, please speak with a store supervisor.

We are very short of donations at the store, particularly in winter clothing for ladies, men and children, kitchen items and electronics. Any little bit helps.

2022 marks the St. Vincent de Paul Value Store's 20th anniversary of serving our community. We look forward to serving you for another 20 years and beyond. Happy New Year! Serviens in Spe.

About Our Store

The Saint Vincent de Paul Value Store sells donated clothing, household items, toys, electronics, and furniture, the proceeds of which help fund the food bank and allow us to help families and individuals in need with rent, utilities, and other necessities. Through our store we are also able to provide a free voucher system which allows us to provide items such as furniture, clothing and new mattresses to those in need, free of charge.

Our store sells approximately 90% of donations we receive. We have an excellent recycling program which allows us to recycle clothing, linen, shoes and other items. These "unsellables" are sent overseas or are broken down into new material. Less than 10% of items received go into the landfill. We are environmentally conscious and aware, keeping thousands of tons of items, including furniture, out of landfills each and every year. Proceeds from our recycling program go to support our many projects.

We operate on a joint volunteer-paid management team. 80% of our staff are volunteers; 20% are paid management staff. Our volunteers work tirelessly sorting every item that comes into our store. Our management team helps to ensure smooth operations of the day-to-day tasks, as well, as ensuring that vouchers are filled and people in crisis situations are made top priority.

After all of our expenses are paid (including rent and utilities for our building, diesel and maintenance on our truck, salary for the management team), all 'profit' from the store is used to help those in need through our many programs.
