St. Vinnies is still operating and ready to help people in Pierce County.
Now, more than ever St. Vinnie’s Homelessness Prevention & Basic Needs Program is essential to help our neighbors in need. Those funds help pay for basic needs, such as rent and utilities, gas cards and food. As there is a decline in the economy, we will see the requests ramp up.
In February St. Vinnies helped 1,048 families and provided $51,269 in direct financial support. In just one month! They expect to see those numbers drastically increase as businesses scale back to accommodate the fighting of the coronavirus. Please, donate to support St. Vinnie’s mission outreach. Every dollar counts.
You can even purchase vintage and other items on eBay, which features St. Vinnies treasures like this Bocce Ball set!
The Beyond Vintage dinner & auction to support the Homelessness Prevention & Basic Needs Program, scheduled April 24th has been postponed. When the new date is set, we will happily share with all of you! You can still purchase tickets online – ebay.com/str/shopsvdp
The Tacoma and Summit Thrift Stores are open and operating Monday thru Saturday, 9am – 5pm. St. Vinnies is taking precautions to keep the retail surfaces, doors, floors and carts wiped down and disinfected throughout the day. Employees are wearing gloves and limiting unnecessary contact. They are monitoring sales throughout the day, and if sales are down, the impacted store will close early that day. Prices are always very affordable at St. Vinnies.
You can even purchase vintage and other items on eBay, which features St. Vinnies treasures like this Anne Leibovitz Portraits 2005-2016 book available online.
St. Vinnies is dependent on us as individuals and community partners to keep their doors open. Please, continue to contribute when you can and donate household items. Please shop with them. You will be surprised at their bargains. You can even shop with St. Vinnies on-line – ebay.com/str/shopsvdp

I’m so glad you have provided this important update. We are blessed to have St. Vinnie’s helping so many in our community. Years ago they helped us, too, when my kids were just little ones.

Thanks for commenting.
True . . . St Vinnies is a blessing for the entire county. We’ve donated equipment, books, and a little of everything. We drop it off and then end up going inside and finding something we can’t do without, but that’s okay, our community benefits.
Thanks for sharing.
