Mission
Since 1990 the Fr. McKenna St. Vincent de Paul Shop (SVdP) through its volunteers, members and programs, has been dedicated to elderly, homeless, working poor, physically handicapped, and mentally challenged neighbors of the Lower Naugatuck Valley.  We fulfill this mission without discrimination or religious affiliation, by providing food, clothing, household furnishings, support and solace to our less fortunate brethren.
Background
In 1990, SVdP opened in a small storefront in Shelton.  As needs increased, the shop moved to another location in Shelton on Canal Street.  While the location was home to SVdP for awhile, the need was once again necessary to relocate since the building was being put up for sale.  A rent was found in neighboring Derby, and the shop relocated and stayed their for a couple of years.
 
In 2006, through the efforts and generosity of the Board of Directors along with the assistance of Webster Bank, a building was purchased in Derby on Roosevelt Drive.  Seven years later in 2013 the Thrift Shop and Food Bank were already reaching capacity, and the board could see there would be a need to expand.  So a building committee was formed, land has been negotiated for purchase and bids have been solicited for the construction of an addition. Construction is presently underway.
Impact
*Served over 700 families
*Assisted over 3,100 people from various ethnicities of the Lower Naugatuck Valley
*Continued Healthy Program Initiative
*Formed a building committee to secure land and implement plans for the construction of an addition to existing building
 
*Continue to meet the increased demands in a stressed economy with limited resources 
*Continue to plan to institute outreach program for those individuals who are homebound
*Award bid and start construction of addition to existing building
*Secure funding for electrical, plumbing, and interior of infrastructure of the new addition
*Continue to serve clients in Thrift Shop and Food Bank with minor disruption.
Needs
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the purchase of land for the expansion of the shop was delayed until July 2014.  At that time bids were advertised for construction of the exterior.  The start of installing the footings was hampered by poor soil conditions which resulted in new fill being purchased at a cost of $19,000. 
 
Also, on two separate occasions, large food purchases had to be made to replenish the stock in the food pantry.  This was the result of less availability at the CT Food Bank and a greater demand/need for clients.
