St. Vincent de Paul has two thrift stores, one in Pleasant Hill and the other in Pittsburg. These stores sort and stock gently used items such as clothes, household goods and furniture. The revenue from these stores pays the salary and costs of entry level workers who are learning skills to allow them to participate in the general workplace. The store also is a source of low cost merchandize to the marginally employed. However, as important, the store assists the Conferences in providing free clothes, household goods and furniture to the very needy. The following positions are needed year long and you can volunteer even a few hours each month. Click here for more details.
