Donations needed to support thrift stores in St. Vincent

RENO, Nevada (KOLO) – Catholic Charities in Northern Nevada are asking for donations from your shed, closet or garage. You can bring gently used items like men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, holiday decorations, gardening tools, books, toys and household items.

Proceeds from sales help fund the nonprofit’s pantries, immigration aid, and St Vincent’s Dining Hall alone serves more than a thousand hot meals each day.

100% of the profits stay here in our community, as CEO Marie Baxter details: “While you’re cleaning out those closets, those garages that you’re tackling, you might have a yard sale and whatever isn’t selling. ..please if you donate to Catholic Charities through St. Vincent Thrift Stores it absolutely helps your neighbors in need through a variety of different programs that we have here.

We are told that no mattresses or televisions will be accepted.

St. Vincent’s Super Thrift is located at 190 E. Glendale Avenue in Sparks. Donations can be made Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Super Thrift is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

In addition to the two thrift stores, Catholic Charities operates a number of conveniently located drop-off points. For a full list, go to
