St. Vincent de Paul Georgia operates 12 Thrift Stores across the state. Donated goods including clothing, shoes and accessories, furniture, household goods, and children items, are sold at discounted prices. With a volunteer staff, our stores provide an economical alternative to typical mall and retail stores for cost-conscious shoppers.
The proceeds from each of the Thrift Stores go directly to the programs and services that deliver hope and help to people in need. The $50 that you spend in a SVdP Thrift Store can turn into the rent or utility payment that keeps a family warm and in their home. The funds raised through sales at the Thrift Store stay in the store’s local community.
You Can Make A Difference!
People in need who are clients of SVdP can receive vouchers to receive a number of thrift store items at no cost. Items that are not sold or donated are sold as raw material for recyclers. Revenue generated from these thrift stores is used to fund direct aid for clients in the form of assistance for rent, utilities, medical expenses, transportation, etc.
St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores are:
- Mission Driven: While respecting the dignity of each person they bring hope and help to people in need so they may find stability and self-sufficiency.
- Creating Jobs: Thrift stores provide training and work experience for those facing barriers to employment.
- Involving the Community: They provide opportunities for the community to understand and care for others.
- Self-Sustaining: They generate revenue to support themselves and the work of SVdP.
