Thanks for filling the SVdP Truck!
The SVdP Thrift Store truck made a stop at St. John's on the weekend of April 13/14, 2013. With your help, we were not only able to fill the entire truck, but two vans! Proceeds benefit the SVdP Thrift Store and the needy of our community. We will try to have the truck at the church on a quarterly basis.
Remember that the truck can pick up donations straight from your home if scheduled in advance. The phone number is 256.851.8881, and store hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9 AM until 4 PM. We are in special need of appliances and furniture. Donations are tax deductible.
