A Grand Opening!
Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago headquarters makes new home in Schiller Park
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Chicago celebrated the Grand Opening of its new headquarters at 10525 Delta Parkway in Schiller Park on December 9. Festivities included a blessing by Assistant Spiritual Advisor Fr. Gerry Kelly, ribbon-cutting ceremony in coordination with the Chamber by O'Hare, and open house for Society members, donors, volunteers, and local dignitaries. Village President/Mayor Barbara Piltaver was on hand to welcome the Society to the Village of Schiller Park.
The new headquarters, conveniently located off Interstate 294 at Irving Park and Mannheim Roads, will serve as a central donation drop-off and processing center, truck dispatch center, and SVdP Chicago administrative office.
"We are thrilled to be part of the Schiller Park community," CEO James Lonergan said. "Ease of highway access and our 30,000 square foot facility allows us to efficiently and effectively process more donations to serve our brothers and sisters in need throughout Cook and Lake counties."
SVdP is the oldest charity in Chicago and serves approximately 800,000 needy families and individuals every year. More than 2,000 volunteers bring help, hope, and the compassion of Christ to the most vulnerable of our society, assisting with food, shelter, clothing, transportation, and emotional and spiritual comfort.
Donations are always needed and welcome. Gently used clothing, furniture, and household items may be dropped off at any one of the three SVdP thrift store drop-off sites in Chicago, Libertyville, and Orland Park. Additional convenient ways to donate include more than 60 drop boxes located at Catholic parishes throughout the area, and free furniture pick-up service available by calling 773-779-6700. A drop-off center will soon be available at the new location in Schiller Park.
Visit svdpchicago.org for updates and more information about accepted and unaccepted donations and donation drop-off locations. In general, all donated items should be gently used, clean, and in working condition – items your family and friends would enjoy using.
"We are a closer community when we treat each other with dignity and respect. Many people who come to us for help may be one paycheck away from poverty. If we can help them by providing a bridge or fill a gap or a need, we may be able to lead some of these people out of poverty," said Lonergan.
