Welcome to the
St. Vincent de pAUL STORE
The SVdP Store will be closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We hope to be able to reopen on April 1st, but will evaluate as time goes by. Safety of our customers and volunteers remain our top priority. We would like to personally thank you for your patience during this disruption to our store. These are uncertain times for many, and our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this pandemic. Thank you.
Society of St. Vincent de Paul
St. Michael/Albertville Conference
& St. Vincent de Paul Store Update...
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul was founded by Frederic Ozanam in France in 1833.
It exists to compassionately serve the most basic needs of the world's forgotten, the deprived and suffering, in a manner that will restore dignity and self-respect.
Founded in July 2013, our Conference focuses on home visits, which was the core activity that Frederic Ozanam and the original Vincentians conducted. Home visits continue to be a fundamental differentiator between our organization and others that serve those in need.
In 2019, our Conference of 30 active Vincentians spent 5,676 total hours helping those in need and growing spiritually. Together, we conducted 131 visits, which aided 399 people with shelter, medical, utilities, auto, gas, and food needs. We also organized the Christmas Gift program for families in need.
In April 2019, our SVdP Store opened through the generosity of a donor and many volunteers who gave their time, talent, and treasure to make it happen.
Our store is also blessed with 80 plus volunteers who spend time sorting incoming donations, working in the store, and doing building maintenance and lawn care.
Since our store opened, we have helped 75 people through our Voucher program, which allows those in need to obtain clothing and household items.
The only way we can do God's work is by the generous donations of others. We are incredibly grateful for those that support us in our efforts. We receive our funding from private donors, fundraising (Friends of the Poor Walk), St. Michael Catholic Church collections, and our St. Vincent de Paul Store.
