Donations Help Support Other Programs
Doing a little spring cleaning? Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada is in need of gently-used items to sell in the St. Vincent’s Thrift Stores. Donations of shoes and clothing for men, women and children, household items, children’s toys, outdoor equipment, furniture and more helps to support other programs operated at Catholic Charities.
“The community has always been so generous with donations to our thrift stores, but what they may not know is that those donations support other programs at Catholic Charities,” said Marie Baxter, CEO of Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada. “By donating and purchasing items in the St. Vincent’s Thrift Stores, you are helping to provide a quality hot-meal to our most vulnerable population as well as jobs for the residents at our Battle Born Housing Plus program. Our mission is to help ease the pain of poverty and provide our clients with dignity while receiving services to help them achieve sustainability.”
The Battle Born Housing Plus program is a sober living community. Residents are enrolled in a program that offers housing and associated wrap-around services including case management, substance abuse counseling, onsite drug and alcohol testing, behavioral health support, employment support/work opportunities, and other tools to help each resident establish a new, more productive path in life. Residents receive employment support by working in the Thrift Stores at Catholic Charities.
The profits from donated items sold through the Thrift Stores support several of the programs offered at Catholic Charities. Funding to the St. Vincent’s Dining Room helps support the more than 1,000 daily hot meals. The St. Vincent’s Food Pantry is the largest food pantry in northern Nevada providing food products to individuals and families across northern Nevada. In addition, the Food Pantry and Resource Hub provides basic needs items such as hygiene items, warm clothing, diapers, gas and bus vouchers, identification, emergency funding for auto repairs and other items to help individuals and families achieve an increased level of self-sufficiency.
