Our Thrift Store Returns!
Great news! Our St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store has reopened!
Our new business hours are 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Sunday.
Please Note: just because our brick-and-mortar store has reopened does NOT mean our online ones will close. Our online stores on eBay and Craigslist will continue to be open for business!
You now have even more ways to shop and support your favorite local thrift store. Thank you for helping us help others!
Small Homes, Big Changes
It was an idea in January. By February, it was providing temporary shelter and services to the first of up 60 homeless Sonoma County residents at a time.
Thanks to the County of Sonoma and the people, partners, and supporters of St. Vincent de Paul Sonoma County, Los Guilicos Village is a life-changing reality. Check out the great video by the County of Sonoma here.
Helping Those Who Serve: The Service Industry Relief Fund of Sonoma County
The State of California Employment Development Department (EDD) says there are more than 72,000 service industry workers – from restaurant servers and hotel workers to baristas and cosmetologists – in Sonoma County. Most of them earn less than the County’s median income, and many of them have lost half their income or more to the pandemic.
Volunteers and supporters from St. Vincent de Paul Sonoma County have come up with a way to help. The Service Industry Relief Fund of Sonoma County is offering $500 stipends to service industry workers in need. And you can help by donating whatever you can to this worthy cause.
For more information, to apply for a stipend, or make a donation, just click here. And thanks.
Thanks to Our Donors!
