St. Vincent’s Donation Drop-off to Open in Northwest Reno


Beginning today, residents of Northwest Reno and the surrounding neighborhoods will be able to donate their gently used clothing, furniture, other household items and more at the St. Vincent Program’s newest drop-off location. Just one bag of clothing donated to Catholic Charities & the St. Vincent’s Program can provide enough revenue to feed 32 hungry patrons.

The St. Vincent Program’s 5th local drop-off location will be opening its doors at 6300 Mae Anne Avenue Unit #7.  Donations will be accepted Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Donations accepted at this drop-off center will be sold at St. Vincent’s Thrift Shop and St. Vincent’s Super Thrift. These stores generate funding for the free food and social service programs under the Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada umbrella and 100% of revenue from the St. Vincent’s Thrift Shop stays in the local community to help those in need.

For convenience, there are four other locations in the community where people can donate.

  • St. Vincent’s Thrift Shop – 500 East Fourth Street, Reno (at Valley Road)
  • St. Vincent’s Super Thrift – 190 East Glendale Avenue, Sparks (at McCarran Blvd.)
  • Donation Drop-off Center – 4670 Sparks Boulevard, Sparks (at Disc Drive)
  • Donation Drop-off Center – 3590 West Plumb Lane, Reno (at McCarran Blvd.)

In addition, we can do in-home pickups for larger items. To schedule one, please call 775-322-7073.
