Reno, Nev. – Looking for a unique gift for that hard to buy for person? Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada is reminding holiday shoppers to visit St. Vincent’s Thrift Stores this holiday season.
“We are extremely blessed to have the generous support of our community who donate to our thrift stores with a unique variety of items such as furniture, clothing, household items and décor, recreation gear and equipment, bikes, children’s games, high end handbags and shoes. It’s also a great stop for that occasional white elephant gift,” said Marie Baxter, CEO of Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada. “Each year our Thrift Stores generate nearly one million dollars in direct funding to our core poverty assistance programs. This is a direct result of the great donations and shoppers.”
With two locations to choose from, the perfect gift is affordable and just around the corner. St. Vincent’s Super Thrift, located at 190 E.
