Both retail locations are now open with regular hours: Mon-Sat 9:00 AM -6:00 PM.  We require: all customers wear a face mask or covering in the store,  only 10 persons are allowed in the store at a time, and we practice social distancing when in the store.

Both of our Food Pantries will remain open by a call and pick-up appointments system only. Pickup times for both locations are Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm.

To ensure plenty of time for processing, we have updated our donation hours at both locations. We are available to accept donation drop-offs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. In addition, we will not be accepting drop-off donations the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Direct services including Immersion and Back 2 Work are operating on a limited basis. The Education Center is closed until further notice.

St. Vincent de Paul of Des Moines values our clients, customers, and staff and wants to keep everyone safe.
Please check back for updates.
