Clothing, Furniture, & Household Goods

Donating your gently used clothing, furniture, and household goods will make a difference in the lives of the people of Dallas. Before you throw items away, consider donating them to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. Your donation can help in one of two ways. First, those in need might be issued vouchers to shop free of charge in our Thrift Stores. Second, treasure hunters and bargain shoppers frequent our stores searching out great values. Proceeds go to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to help fund their programs and services.
