St. Vincent de Paul, otherwise known as Vinnies, was founded in Paris, France, in the 1830s. It wasn’t until 1845 that they first set foot in the US.

The organization offers material and spiritual aid to households and individuals in need. Its outreach activities extend to disaster relief, as well as visits to elder care facilities, hospitals, and prisons. To date, it has deployed nearly 100,000 trained volunteers across the United States.

One of the ways they achieve their charitable objectives is through donations, as well as by partnering with corporate sponsors and other non-profit organizations. The society also sponsors fundraising events, such as an annual Friends of the Poor Walk/Run.

Resources and training to individuals interested in opening thrift stores are also available, as they benefit both parties.
