Society of St. Vincent de Paul to host a ‘Volunteer Fair’ on October 1


The Society of St. Vincent de Paul will be recruiting volunteers to help with its local charitable services at a Volunteer Fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on October 1 at the Society’s Thrift Store, 210 N. Avenue 2, Los Angeles, 90031. FREE snacks will be provided.

Volunteers are needed to help in a variety of areas at the Society’s thrift stores in Los Angeles, Long Beach and Oxnard. In addition, volunteer mentors are being sought for St. Vincent de Paul’s Cardinal Manning Center (shelter) in the Toy District of downtown L.A.

“Volunteers are the backbone to our community outreach in the counties of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara. These individuals make a huge impact when it comes to improving the quality of life for thousands of children, women and men every year,” said David Fields, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul. “Our goal is to recruit additional volunteers who can help us continue that legacy of rebuilding lives.”

Individuals, 18 years of age and older, are encouraged to attend this special Volunteer Fair to see how YOU can make a difference in a life today!

To volunteer, or for more information, please contact the Society’s Human Resources Department at 323-224-6286 or via email at nsinclair@svdpla.org.
