St. Vincent de Paul's Social Enterprises diverts thousands of pounds of consumer goods from landfills, provides transitional employment and skills training, and serves our community by providing low- or no-cost services and goods. The revenue from our Social Enterprises funnels into the free social programs that we offer at our direct service campus in West Oakland, one of the most distressed communities in Northern California.

Flexible schedule - volunteer shifts are available Monday through Saturday between 9am and 3pm. Free gated parking is available on-site.

Volunteers will be asked to search through our warehouse and incoming donations to look for antiques, collectible, and other high value items. Some of these treasures will get diverted to SVdP’s Redux Studio & Gallery (our retail, gallery, and artist studio space) for upcycling into artistic home decor art products, some will go to our other stores, and others will get listed on eBay and Craigslist. Dress in your grubbiest clothes, bring a pair of sturdy gloves, and get ready to dig up some gems!
