They are starting a 1.2 million dollar fundraising campaign to purchase a permanent facility.

 

The campaign will seek grants and community donations.

 

Store Manager Don Smith says they've grown tremendously in the last fifteen years.

 

"We've increased from a small house serving 12 families to 70 to 80-people per day now.  And it's something we've been able to do because of our thrift store.  It helps us to cover our operational costs and then some."

 

St. Vince De Paul currently serves more than 24 thousand meals each month to those in need.  

 

Their current facility is located on Veterans Way and the nonprofit is looking at possibly buying it.
