Local Businesses Team Up to Support St. Vincent Place


Upon learning of the increased need for help and decrease in donations at the St. Vincent Place food bank, Catherine’s Hairstyling and PDQ Signs have teamed up to support the organization.

For the month of July, you can drop off your nonperishable donations to Catherine’s Hairstyling at 360 Bruce St. Catherine’s is open Tuesday 9AM-5PM, Wednesday and Thursday 9AM-8PM, Friday 9AM-5PM, and Saturday 9AM-3PM.

St. Vincent Place is very grateful to Catherine from Catherine’s Hairstyling and Jim from PDQ Signs for taking on this initiative and supporting the organization.

Today also marks the first of St. Vincent Place’s weekly summer drive-thru food drives. Every Tuesday in July and August, you can donate from 10AM to 6PM by simply pulling up to the main doors at 222 Albert St. E. Volunteers will collect your donation so that you don’t even need to get out of your vehicle.
St. Vincent Place is happy to receive donations of any nonperishables, but for a list of what we need most often, visit www.vincentplacessm.ca/wishlist.

If you have questions about the St. Vincent Place food bank, would like to volunteer for the drive-thru food drives, or are a business owner who would like to run your own drive, please contact Sara at [email protected] or 705-253-2770 ext. 202. This is a great opportunity for high school students hoping to put in some volunteer hours over the summer.
