OUR RESPONSE DURING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
At St. Vincent de Paul we are actively assessing our operations daily.
At this time, we have made the decision to close our Thrift Store & Donation Center until further notice.
PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF DONATIONS.
We look forward to seeing you and serving you again, as soon as it is safe to do so.
With our store being closed, we have lost most of our income source. We are still serving our neighbors through our hotline, pantry and meal site. If you can, please consider sending financial donations to:
St. Vincent de Paul Society
P.O. Box 11
Rice Lake, WI 54868

Saturday -- 9am to 6pm (donation gate closing at 5:30)

We are grateful for our customers and donors.
So much fun shopping and full of great values; our store tends to be the public face of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Our store attracts people - from all income levels - who are looking for great deals on gently used goods. We are appreciative of that. We want them, and you to shop at our store.
Why we run our store
We don't operate our thrift store for our own sake. However, our store serves two significant functions related to our mission of offering help to our neighbors of Barron County in need:
1) Our store provides the majority of revenue that funds our programs providing assistance to local households struggling with poverty; and
2) Our store offers charity to our local neighbors in need by giving away - through a voucher system - donated goods directly from our store inventory. In addition to that process, our store provides a reasonably priced place for anyone and everyone to shop. We offer full and part-time employment for over 30 people striving towards an actual living wage for our staff. The revenues from our store help fund our food pantry and other programs we offer.
