donation needsSt. Vincent Catholic Charities (STVCC) annually provides services to thousands of children, families and adults, of all beliefs, living in this community.  Donation needs to the services of STVCC are based upon the core and basic needs of refugee families and other customers of STVCC, and may vary depending on the season and items in which we currently have the largest need.  Most clean furniture items (those without stains or tears) can be scheduled for pick-up within the Greater Lansing Area.  All smaller household items may be dropped off (weekdays 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) at STVCC, located at 2800 W. Willow Street, Lansing, MI 48917.  For questions about donations, please call (517) 323-4734 Ext. 1050 or email  Remember, all donations are tax-deductible.
