One Good Thing: Monarch Thrift Visits Eugene

This past week we had visitors from Monarch Thrift, a social enterprise of Emmaus Ministries in Chicago, IL.   Monarch Thrift is a boutique environment where all proceeds benefit programs for vulnerable populations.  The space they operate provides a place for shoppers, donors, volunteers, and employees to interacts on a regular basis while moving forwards towards their mission of supporting programs related to the fields of addiction recovery, integration, and other services to vulnerable populations.

We enjoyed showing them the many ways St. Vincent de Paul reaches into the community – not only through retail thrift, but other services to assist the vulnerable populations in Lane County.  We look forward to a potential partnership in the future!
