The Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) opened a new Vincent’s shop in Moyross on 16 October.
This is the third Vincent’s shop in Limerick city. There are three other shops throughout the county
Vincent's Moyross is situated at Watch House Cross and will serve the local Moyross community and surrounding areas.
Vincent’s charity shops are a very important aspect of the service SVP provides.
Not only do they provide people with new and lightly worn items at affordable prices,
they also provide an income source for the Society, which is recycled directly back into the community.
There are over 230 SVP shops throughout the country. They are each managed by a small number of professionals, assisted by a large number of volunteers and by community employment trainees.
Anyone interested in volunteering in Vincents Moyross should call into the shop or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The profits generated from the charity shops are recycled into local Conferences around Ireland to support those in need.
Local SVP Conferences can also provide people with Vincent’s Gift Tokens which they can use in any of the shops.
The second-hand clothes and other items donated to Vincent's charity shops make a difference to people in need in their communities.
