Back to School Clothing

Getting children ready for the return to school each fall is expensive for all families. For low income families in Vancouver, the cost of school clothing can be overwhelming. Our Back-to-School clothing program provides new and almost-new clothing to over 550 children each year.

We start taking phone calls in early July of each year, scheduling families in advance with an appointment in August during our regular opening hours.  One side of our facility is set aside for this popular program.  



In addition to our daily operation of providing food and clothes to the poor, the Vancouver St. Vincent de Paul Society Conference also conducts several Special Programs to further help needy families in Clark County.
