Two St. Vincent de Paul stores open in southeastern Wisconsin

Two St. Vincent de Paul stores have opened in southeastern Wisconsin in the last four months, one operated by the Milwaukee County council in Greenfield and the other supporting the mission of the Racine County council in Waterford.

Both councils say they hope that these two additions will bolster revenue to support the society’s mission of ministering to the poor.

“The revenue that comes from this store is going to help the poorest,” said Rosemary Storts, president of the Milwaukee County St. Vincent de Paul board, in a June 2014 interview with the Catholic Herald, soon after the store was approved by the Greenfield Common Council. “Our St. Vincent de Paul volunteers make visits every day to people in need in almost every zip code area. This will help the poorest of those ministries and programs. It keeps them going."

I wish we had one in our area.  I think Marshfield is the closest one.
