St. Vincent DePaul Mission

Waterbury, Connecticut, U.S.A.


Thrift Store


In 1978, the St. Vincent DePaul Mission Of Waterbury established a Thrift Store under the direction of Rev. Philip J. Cascia and its Board of Directors. The Thrift Store operates six days a week Monday to Saturday, providing clothing and material needs for the poor. A case worker is available to assess the individual needs of the clientele. Our experience has taught us that a poor person may be able to afford a rent, but not however, furniture or clothing. The St. Vincent DePaul Thrift Store helps this person get on their feet, maintain their dignity, and become a member of society. This program allows the poor to obtain articles and appliances at no charge or at a nominal fee, based on the individual's need. All articles and appliances offered by the Thrift Store are donated by the community.
