On August 14th and 15th leases for most downtown area apartments are up. That means that thousands of folks will be moving out of their old apartments and into new ones.

DONATE YOUR USABLE GOODS

Many renters find that they have many usable items they no longer need such as clean clothing, functional household items, small furniture, unopened nonperishable food, and kitchen items. Instead of throwing those items out when you move, we have organized several places where you can donate usable items in the downtown area.

Please, no sofa sleepers, televisions, computer equipment or junk, just items that can be reused.

Just bring your usable goods to the following location on the dates listed and they will be put to good use by St. Vincent De Paul.
