How to help

To stock its East St. Louis Thrift Store, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul takes donations of clothes, shoes, furniture, household items, décor, appliances and electronics so it can provide goods at a low-cost to those in need. The organization also accepts monetary donations as well as vehicle donations. People also may volunteer to help with fundraising, at the soup kitchen, on a soup bus and thrift store, among other things.
