St. Vincent de Paul is suggesting some ways to use the tax rebates arriving in the mail, all of which would help a worldwide organization that has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
St. Vincent de Paul has a thrift store in the Highlands at 2825 Sunset Blvd. N.E.
“We believe this is an easy way to help a neighbor in need. And it won’t cost a dime from your regular income,” said Richard Bray of Renton, who is director of donor and community relations for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Seattle/King County.
Here are the ideas:
• Make a financial gift to St. Vincent de Paul. Help a neighbor in need by preventing eviction, power shut-off or hunger—consider $175 in honor of the 175th anniversary.
• Shop at the Renton Highlands thrift store. And if someone buys a new plasma TV or a furniture set, Bray suggests donating the good-conditioned used one. Call 206-767-9975 ext. 116 for details.
• Donate all or part of the tax rebate to St. Vincent de Paul.
St. Vincent de Paul has served Renton needy since 1954.
