For a number of years the East Cooper conferences of the St. Vincent DePaul Society have operated a furniture outreach program at the ECCO Center in Mt. Pleasant. Some of the St. Joseph’s SVDP clients have benefited from their generosity. The furniture outreach program has recently expanded the service by opening a facility at St. Johns Catholic Church in North Charleston (3921 St. Johns Ave., adjacent to the former Navy Base). The facility is staffed on Saturday mornings 9:30-10:30 a.m. to accept donations of furniture and household items such as linens and sets of kitchen ware. If you have a donation and need to have it picked up, please call the parish office at 556-4611 and a SVDP member will call you back to make the arrangements. Clients interested in applying for a furniture grant must call the SVDP Helpline at 727-1515.
