The truck is used to pick up donations of goods for the St Vincent de Paul Thrift Store and St. Clare's Food Pantry, as well as deliver purchased goods to customers. The truck is used 6 days a week covering Canyon and Ada County.
The current truck is a 1999, over 210k miles and has spent 24 days this year in the shop, resulting in huge repair bills, and the added expense of a rental.
The store funds the charitable work of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Caldwell and surrounding area. Services provided by the Society include help with utilities, housing, clothing, furniture and food to the needy. The Pantry provides food boxes to more than 80 families per week.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization with more than 8400 volunteer hours contributed last year and funded only by donations.
Your donation, no matter the amount, will help us continue to help the needy in our community!

St. Vincent de Paul is extremely thankful for the box truck that was recently donated in Imelda Garcia’s honor. Imelda passed from this life on March 20, 2017. This is the message from her family:
"We are donating this truck in Imelda Garcia’s honor. She was always a giver and had a huge heart for people in need. We hope this truck can make a difference to many people in need around the valley, especially immigrants, refugees and the poor. We’re hoping that Imelda’s legacy of generosity to her family and friends will continue with St. Vincent de Paul’s outreach to all people in our community."
