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.
