St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store and Services Center will host a community open house from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 17 at the non-denominational Thomas & Sondra Sheehan Center, 1391 Greenfield Ave., Noblesville. Tours of the thrift store, food pantry and assistance area will be offered at 9 and 11 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m.
Organizers said the event serves as a call-out for community volunteers who are needed to assist with daily operations with the increasing numbers at the center. Volunteers select the area in which they would like to assist and how often they work. Training will be provided to all volunteers.
The Sheehan Center, staffed entirely by volunteers, has provided food for 5,146 families through the food pantry; assisted 205 families with utility and other bills; and provided furniture and clothing for 367 families this year. The thrift store is open to the public and proceeds from sales help stock the food pantry and provide financial assistance to local families in need.
