Why shop at our Thrift Store?

Shoppers and volunteers in our store help us to generate revenue to fund our “Referral Program” year- round. It is through this program that we can provide low-cost or no-cost goods directly to those in need. St. Vincent de Paul delivers furniture, clothing and other household goods directly to people who have experienced a terrible loss, such as a natural disaster, eviction or foreclosure, domestic violence or homelessness.

In many of these cases a family is forced to leave quickly, often leaving behind what few household items they had. St. Vincent de Paul may be the only organization that can quickly help them get resettled with the items they need.

When doing home visits our conference volunteers often discover the families they are working with are also sleeping or eating dinner on the floor. In these cases, a referral is made to the SVDP store and the families are quickly helped with the items they need.

Where does the money go?

At St. Vincent de Paul in Grand Rapids, we believe that "to serve the poor is to serve Jesus." That's why we work with approximately 30 carefully screened non-profit agencies, schools and churches to serve the poor.
