These donations don't just mean our neighbors get great stuff at great prices. Donations to thrift stores like St. Vincent de Paul, offer people in need some resources like financial assistance for rent, utilities, transportation, and prescriptions, as well as help through their food pantries for folks experiencing some tough times.
