SSVP Shop for good, affordable and quality thrifting.
The Society started SSVP Shop, a social enterprise, in September 2019.
This establishment of this charity thrift shop was made possible when the Society received a significant bequest from the estate of an anonymous donor.
With this, the Society acquired a building at 501 Geylang Road, renovated it and set up SSVP Shop on the ground floor.
The shop and the building, named SSVP House, was blessed by Fr Eugene Vaz and inaugurated by Minister for Social and Family Development, Mr Desmond Lee, on 21 September, 2019.
As a Charity Shop or Thrift Shop, the items on sale at the shop are mainly from collection drives done by Vincentians at various Catholic churches. People also donate valuable items after making an appointment with the shop management.
Our day-to-day operations are managed by a pool of volunteers along with a full-time staff supervisor. A Shop Committee, comprising Vincentians, oversees the overall management.
Every item you donate and what you spend at the shop will go towards helping the poor.
