Earlier this week, we made an exciting announcement — we proudly welcomed The Society of the St. Vincent DePaul of Philadelphia as our third partner charity! As of Nov. 1, our donors can now choose to direct their donations of lightly worn clothing and other used household goods to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society of Philadelphia’s motto is “neighbors helping neighbors.” It is their mission to help neighbors throughout Philadelphia that are in need of the most basic necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, transportation, and emotional comfort. Members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Philadelphia provide compassionate, person-to-person caring volunteers who work to improve the heartbreaking situations caused by poverty.
Through this new partnership, GreenDrop offers the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Philadelphia the resources to successfully conduct drives, while providing the same at-home pickups that its donors are already familiar with.
We also offer a better alternative for those donors who have historically donated to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia through clothing bins. GreenDrop manages attended donation centers throughout the Philadelphia area that ensure donations are accounted for and taken care of, and that the donation process is easy, convenient, and safe for donors.
We couldn’t be happier to add this amazing new charity to the GreenDrop family just in time for the holidays — a time that we know can be hard for those in need. A big welcome to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia!
