Thrift Stores Seeking Donations to Help Those in Need
As the summer season blazes on, the needs of the homeless and the working poor in Chicago continue to grow
To try and alleviate those needs, all of the St. Vincent de Paul Chicago Thrift Stores are seeking good quality donations.
Items most needed include:
- Household items and small appliances such as pots and pans, dishes, coffee pots and microwaves
- Electronics including CD players, radios, and stereo speakers
- Furniture including desks, end tables, night stands, dressers, coffee tables, chairs, and kitchen dining sets
- New or gently used clothing including shoes, business attire, and winter coats
In general, all donated items should be gently used, clean, and in working condition.
Thrift store donations have a direct impact on those in need. Many of the goods that are donated to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul go toward an emergency voucher program, where individuals and families in need are offered goods free of charge in a confidential and dignified way.
"Donations are vital to keeping Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago Thrift Stores running and actively supporting our mission," said Stores Director Margaret Jones. "Items especially needed are bric-a-brac and household items such as pots and pans, dishes, microwaves and small bedroom furniture. Item donations are one of the easiest ways to help our organization reach more people in need of our help."
In 2014, the SVdP Thrift Stores provided more than $30,000 worth of donated goods to more than 1,000 needy people throughout Cook and Lake counties.
St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores generate needed revenue and funds to support all of the programs that the organization provides including utility shut-off prevention, emergency vouchers, and more than 40 food pantries.
Donations are accepted at all three St. Vincent de Paul Chicago Thrift Stores. Locations include 9321 S. Western Avenue in Chicago, 7010 W. 159th Street in Orland Park, and 1125 S. Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville.
Free furniture pickup service is available by calling 773.779.6700. Donations can also be placed in one of our more than 60 drop boxes located throughout Cook and Lake counties.
Be on the lookout for a Central Donation Processing Center opening in Schiller Park this fall to accommodate even more donations to help more people in need!
