COVID-19 Statement - March 21 In times of financial hardship and uncertainty, St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marinette has been there for our neighbors to offer a compassionate listening ear and assistance. We take the health and safety of those we serve, our employees, and volunteers very seriously, but also recognize that our services are needed now more than ever due to families and individuals being thrust into situational poverty. We have made a very difficult decision, St. Vincent de Paul Marinette Thrift Store will close until further notice to protect our employees, their families, and our community. This decision has been the hardest. Our store is the main source of revenue to sustain the food pantry. Now we can only count on YOU to help those in need (whose now are people you know, co-workers, friends, or relatives). We appreciate those thinking of us with your donations of tangible goods. Given the recent studies that came out in regards to the life of the virus on different surfaces, we ask kindly; if you're able, please save your gently used items as donations to us in the near future. Our team is determining the safest way to accept future donations. If recent events have you wondering how you might be able to help support your community, here are a few ideas:
Call and check in on a neighbor, grandparent, friend, etc.
Share local social media posts to help spread the ways our community is coming together during this difficult time
Donate to local nonprofits that are working hard to ensure we can continue to provide aid to those that need our services
Thank you for your continued support! We will continue to monitor the situation and will evaluate and adjust our plans in accordance with the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Marinette County Health and Human Services Department.
