As Told to Good360 by St. Vincent de Paul
St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, located in Ruskin, FL in the East District, serves the community by helping the less fortunate between four Florida counties by providing donations and financial assistance. Thanks to this donation from Good360, we were able to provide clothing, appliances, furniture, household items and more to any individual that came to our store. Whether it was giving them blankets to keep warm at night or a blender to help make breakfast for their children, every item made an impact.
Many of our recipients share their appreciation with us. One lady came in after walking eight miles in 95-degree weather to get items for her new job. She visited our store and we provided her with three pairs of black slacks, three shirts and a pair of shoes. She was very excited to start her new position with professional clothes. Another story is from a mother who came into the store pregnant and with 4 children, needing clothing for each of the children, who ranged in age from two to 17. They were staying at a local hotel during this hardship and were not able to do enough laundry during their stay. Thanks to donations like this, families and individuals can solve their problems one item at a time! We are very proud to work with Good360 and give back through our items.
