If the pantry/warehouse must close due to adverse weather, we will contact our volunteers by phone and/or e-mail. We will close when the Brown County Schools close due to weather. On Saturdays, if we close due to weather, we will put a message on our telephone recording (812-988-8821).
Please remember when shopping, if you do not need something or already have enough at home, you are free to say “no” to an item and leave it for another family.
All clothing, appliances and furniture are donated to St. Vincent de Paul to benefit those in need. We try to be fair by limiting each family to 2 large items per year. Help us help as many as possible, by taking only what you need.
Vincentians endeavor to establish relationships based on trust and friendship with those we serve.
