Store Temporarily Closed Due to Fire Damage
In the early morning hours, the fire department was called in response to report of an incident that occurred at the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. While the store is closed at this time, we are eager to rebuild and continue to provide for people in need. Furthermore, we are unable to received material donations at this very moment.
If you would like to help out in our campaign to restore the thrift shop, please visit our campaign’s GoFundMe site. We will still be able to continue our work with home visits and financial assistance during this time, until current funding runs out. We would be very grateful for any help that you can provide!
The St. Thomas Conference of St. Vincent de Paul began in 1935 and is the only conference serving the Ann Arbor area. The aim of the Society is to bring true charity to all. It is not simply distributing goods to the needy. It is fundamentally the giving of oneself in friendship, which can only be done through personal encounter. At the same time, members grow spiritually by experiencing the Lord in each other and in those whom they serve.
