Orland Park Thrift Store Opens in January
Orland Park St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store at 7010 West 159th Street is now open!
"Anyone looking for good bargains and a way to give back to their community should look no further than the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store," SVdP Chief Executive Officer James D. Lonergan said. "Our Orland Park location will have a powerful impact not only on the people that we work with directly, but also on the larger community as a whole; offering a low-cost, high quality shopping experience as well as employment and volunteer opportunities."
St. Vincent de Paul is a non-profit organization. All of the proceeds from thrift store sales go directly back into the community to fund the St. Vincent de Paul food pantries and emergency voucher programs.
"Our thrift stores are self-sustaining enterprises and help us provide the basics for human dignity such as food, shelter, and clothing to thousands of people annually. We plan to build six more thrift stores over the next five years so we can better serve the growing number of people who come to us for help," Lonergan said.
Gently used clothing, shoes, housewares, home décor, books, furniture and much more can be found at low prices in a clean and modern store. Store features include wide shopping aisles, pleasant lighting, and large department signage to help our customers find what they need.
Store hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mon., Tues., Thurs., Fri., and Saturday.
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Item donations can be brought to the drop-off area in the rear of the building. Please do not leave items unattended.
Vincentians and parishioners from St. Gilbert Parish host first mobile food pantry event
Fresh produce, meats, and non-perishable food items were given to 146 people, representing 544 family members in Grayslake and its surrounding communities on June 28, 2014.
"Serving over 100 people on the first event is considered a successful day," said the driver of the Northern Illinois Food Bank's mobile pantry.
Funds raised through a special collection at the church provided the $1200 needed to bring the mobile food pantry to St. Gilbert's Parish for a day. The people receiving the food were extremely grateful both for the assistance and the kindness shown to them by the members of St. Gilbert's conference.
St. Gilbert Parish is located at 301 East Belvidere Road in Grayslake, Illinois. To learn more about the mobile food pantry or to make a donation, please call 312.655.7183.
