DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – St. Vincent de Paul is calling on the Miami Valley for donations ahead of the weekend snowstorm.
In particular, they are in need of winter clothes for both residents staying at their shelters, as well as their thrift stores.
St. Vincent de Paul is supporting as many as 500 people in the Dayton area, and any support they receive from the community is greatly appreciated.
“When you’re focused on your basic needs of shelter, food, and warm clothing, the gratitude is there when you receive it, and the hardship is there when you don’t have it,” says Michael Vanderburgh, executive director of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Anyone who wishes to donate clothing can do so by dropping off items at their locations on West Apple Street and Edwin C Moses Boulevard in Dayton.
Food donations are also welcome.
