Style Philanthropy

This August, the Society of St. Vincent De Paul is calling on Dublin’s fashionable and charitable denizens to drop off unwanted clobber at special clothes banks as part of its ‘Donate with Style’ clothing appeal.

The banks will be set up at EC House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 for one week only (22nd- 26th August) as part of the European Year of Volunteering Roadshow (EYV2011) which hopes to generate new recruits such as retail staff for some of the society's 33 Dublin-based clothes stores (soon to be 34!).

In recent months the SVP has seen a significant drop in donations, especially clothing. In the medium to long term, this will significantly impact on the work of Vincent’s shops and the raising of funds for SVP generally. 

For more information on the ‘Donate with Style’ clothing appeal or about the Vincent’s charity shops in the Dublin Region, call Jane Bergin on (01) 8198413.
