Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
We operate four thrift stores throughout Northern Kentucky: Erlanger, Florence, Cold Spring, and Falmouth. Our stores’ stock comes from donations to our donation center and 70% of the revenue from these stores directly funds the programs that help our Northern Kentucky neighbors in need. We offer emergency assistance for rent and utilities that help to keep neighbors in their homes, as well as vouchers through our stores for furniture, clothes, and household items.

We also operate 3 centrally-run food pantries in Erlanger, Cold Spring, and Falmouth in addition to supporting 26 parish pantries in the Diocese of Covington. These pantries provide needed groceries to neighbors who are struggling financially.

St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky also hosts an annual coat drive and distribution for our NKY neighbors. In 2023, over 1800 neighbors were gifted coats and other needed winter gear to protect them from the cold.

Every child deserves the joy of the holiday season and to open a gift. Our Vincent’s Angels Program seeks donations of new toys that are distributed to parents, grandparents, and guardians who can “shop” for their children. In 2022, more than 500 children received toys for Christmas morning. Similarly, we host an Adopt-a-Family Program, matching families with donors who shop specifically for their match families.
