Thank you for considering donating to the Society St. Vincent de Paul. We are committed to helping our neighbors in need, and your donations enable us to provide assistance to those less fortunate. Many donations are given directly to those in need free of charge, and others are sold in our eighteen stores – these sales enable us to provide food, clothing, utilities, transportation and other necessities to those in need. Thank you for helping us help others!
Scheduling a Pickup: Please contact your local SVdP Thrift Store to see if they offer pickup service. Not all SVdP Thrift Stores have vehicles to pick up donations or deliver merchandise.
If you are not available when a pickup of goods is scheduled, you are welcome to leave your items outside (weather permitting), clearly marked for the drivers, or under a covered porch or in a garage. The drivers cannot go into a home or business if no one is present.
St. Vincent de Paul is able to accept clothing, furniture and household items in clean, working condition that are suitable for resale in our stores. Due to safety regulations, disposal and handling costs, there are some items that we are unable to take. Before you schedule your pickup, please check with an employee or volunteer on items that we cannot accept. Please also note that final acceptance of all donated items is up to the discretion of the driver.
Donation Receipts: The drivers will bring a pre-printed receipt of your donations for tax purposes. As stated on the receipt, the donor determines the value for any donated items. We do have information from the IRS to assist you in determining the value for your donations.
Large Sale Pickups: Please consider contacting us if your neighborhood, church, or organization is having a garage or rummage sale, and you would like to donate any leftover items from these sales. We can arrange for a driver to come for a pickup after the sale. Please have any small items prepared for pickup in boxes and bags, if possible. We are also able to pick up large items, such as furniture, if they are in good condition.
Non-perishable food and paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, etc.) are always in great demand at our food pantries. We can never get enough items such as baby food, diapers of all sizes, laundry detergent and personal products. If you would like to donate these or other supplies, please contact your local SVdP food pantry.
