Thrift store volunteers are trained to work in many areas of St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores including: Receiving donations, straightening, sorting and pricing clothing, linens, household goods, books, furniture and electronics, answering telephones and scheduling furniture and appliance pickups by our trucks, and cashiering.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Naples is a Catholic lay organization whose members join together to grow spiritually by providing person-to-person service to the needy and suffering. We embrace all works of charity and justice, and make no distinction in those served because in them we see the face of Christ.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul serves everyone, regardless of creed, opinion, color, or origin.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is committed to helping our neighbors in need. Through our direct assistance program, one-to-one interviews are conducted with each individual to determine what type of assistance is needed: food, rent, utility bills, clothing, furniture or household items.
Our two thrift stores are not only exceptional resale shops; they are a significant source of the funds used to provide programs, services and basic life necessities to our neighbors in need.
Through our Meals on Wheels program, we are able to deliver food to clients; they also spend a few welcomed minutes visiting with recipients. Many times, volunteers are able to identify other needs recipients have that can be met with services offered through the Society's Personal Assistance program or with the items from the thrift stores.
