St.Vincent’s expands to improve service

The St. Vincent DePaul Society and Community Store broke ground April 12 on a 36,000-square-foot addition to improve services and ministry outreach.

The expansion will add a drive-through donation drop-off, a donation processing center, more administrative space and a permanent home for several community outreach programs.

This is the first building project at the site on Eastern Avenue since it was purchased in 2005. The St. Vincent DePaul Society has been in Plymouth since the mid-1960s.

“We are thrilled to begin this new chapter for St. Vincent DePaul because it will allow us to have more volunteer opportunities and better warehouse our merchandise. It will be a much better experience for our donors, shoppers and volunteers who have given us such loyal support for years,” said Executive Director Marge Ausloss.

“We will also finally have a home-base for our community outreach and youth services which will be a major asset to the city of Plymouth.”

Heavy equipment has begun moving earth on the southern end of the building. The addition will be two stories and include a garden level. Years of thoughtful planning and saving public and private donations, has funded the project which is being partially financed with city-issued bonds.

“This expansion will ensure that the vital services and ministry of St. Vincent DePaul remain in Plymouth for generations to come,” said St. Vincent DePaul Society’s Board of Directors President Louie Gentine.

Financial donations are still graciously accepted for this phase as well as a second phase that will help Plymouth with recycling and electronic waste. Phase one construction will end in December and will be fully operational by Christmas.
