St. Vinnie’s Starts Remodeling Project

EUGENE, Ore. — St. Vincent de Paul is getting started on a big remodeling project a little at a time.

The nonprofit is making more room at the Eugene service station for day services.

The center offers free food, laundry and showers to homeless and at-risk adults.

St. Vincent de Paul is waiting on grant money for the whole project, so Monday it started expanding the day center.

“The population of homeless singles that we have seen in the last year has almost doubled, and as a result of that the need to have more physical space for both food service, laundry and so forth has really gone up quite a bit,” said Terry McDonald, SVdP Executive Director.

Next spring it will build a commercial kitchen at the service station.
