St Vinnie's was born to respond to social unrest and injustices, 200 years ago. Now, friends, we need YOUR HELP to respond to today's needs:
In the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd, our Minneapolis thrift store was looted. That means we've lost funding for our food bank, Vinnie's Hope. Through this program, and the support of our partners and community, we are able to feed more than 10,000 people each week.
Our Minneapolis thrift store was set to re-open on June 1, but due to the riots, we've had to postpone our re-opening until the store has been repaired. We need your help to clean up our store so we may continue our work of feeding those desperately in need.
Can you help? We need prayers, and we need money to keep up our work. Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution.

Our vision is to create a community where all are welcome and supported by providing Christian compassion to our neighbors in need. Our purpose is to relieve need in our community while also addressing the situations that cause it. Through thrift stores, free stores, food banks, and home visits the Society acts as an advocate for the rights and dignity of every individual in need.
