UPDATE April 5, 2020: SSVP Brant Response to Covid-19 Crisis

To help our community and our world manage this threat, SSVP Brant Thrift Store has been closed since Tuesday, March 17th.

As we do not qualify as an “essential business” in the province we could not re-open at this time even if we decided this would be feasible or wise. At this time it is our plan to extend the closing of our Store until (at least) May 4, 2020.

 

To those we serve in Brantford/Brant: if you require emergency assistance (food only) during this period, call the phone number for our branch (conference) that covers your area – to hear how they are adapting their service for you…

that is,

east & south Brantford St. Mary 226-208-6846 (no office hours at this time)

north Brantford St. Pius X 519-753-9052

central Brantford 519-751-0143

Burford, Scotland, West Brantford Blessed Sacrament 519-865-1562

Paris & St. George Sacred Heart 519-442-2465

 

If you are unsure which conference serves you, call the Store number 519-751-0143 (Its voice messages will be monitored.) or email ssvpbrant@gmail.com and you will be re-directed.

 

To our generous donors: we thank you for your patience and understanding at this time and will again gladly accept your gently-used clothing, household items and furniture when we re-open.

 

To our loyal shoppers: when you return to our Store after this situation is resolved we will still have the “best prices in town”. Your shopping dollars support our service to those in need in Brantford/Brant.

 

Finally, to our dedicated volunteers, at the Store and the conferences: Thank you to those who are finding alternative ways to serve those in need while keeping yourselves safe and healthy. Thanks to each of you for your ongoing service and commitment. Take care of yourselves. We’ll keep in touch.
