NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS. That's what the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is all about - caring people helping their neighbors in need of the most basic necessities - food, shelter, clothing, transportation and emotional comfort. There are heartbreaking circumstances right here in our own community, but practical, compassionate person-to-person caring can make a world of difference.

How It Works
GreenDrop is the fast, easy, and convenient way to donate.

For items you are interested in donating, GreenDrop is the perfect solution for you.  We accept clothing and toys.  Check out our Acceptable Items page to see if your donation is accepted by GreenDrop!

See if your donated objects are accepted and follow our rules and government guidelines:

We cannot accept furniture, TVs or computer monitors.  Also, be sure your donations weigh 50 pounds or less.

Check out our list of unacceptable items before dropping your donations off at one of our locations or scheduling us to pick items up from your home.

If any of the items that you donated are on our unaccepted list, we will let you know the reasons why with an “Apology Card” we leave at your door. 

Working with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia, GreenDrop helps raise money for different programs for those in need throughout the Philadelphia region.  Contributions from our sales are given to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

GreenDrop’s tax-deductible donations are sold to different thrift shops like 2nd Avenue and Village Thrift.  The profit is then given to the variety of charities we work with.  In 2015, our contributions exceeded $2.5 million helping thousands of people in need.
