Donation Information

St. Vincent Catholic Charities annually provides services to thousands of children, families and adults, of all beliefs, living in this community. Donations to the services of STVCC are based upon the core and basic needs of refugee families and other clients of STVCC, and may vary depending on the season and our current needs. Most clean furniture items (those without stains or tears) can be scheduled for pick-up.  All smaller household items may be dropped off (weekdays 8:30am to 4:00pm) at St. Vincent Catholic Charities, located at 2800 W. Willow Street, Lansing, MI 48917. Telephone number is (517) 323-4734 ext 1050. Or you can email staff at donations@stvcc.org. Please note that all donations will be inspected prior to being accepted. STVCC staff reserves the right to decline any donations if they do not meet specifications or needs, this includes items that are dirty, covered in pet hair or in poor condition.

Remember, all donations are tax-deductible.
