Saint Vincent De Paul Letterkenny



About Us

The St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) Ireland is part of an International Christian voluntary network dedicated to tackling poverty in all it's form by providing practical assistance to people in need. Founded in Ireland in 1844, we foster diverse and inclusive connections, as a society that is welcoming of people of all faith and none. Our Vincent's Charity Shops are a very important aspect of the services 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. The charity shops are managed by a small number of professionals, assisted by a large number of volunteers and by community employment trainees. The profits generated from the charity shops, some of which also supply furniture, are recycled into local conferences around Ireland to support those in need.
