St. Vincent de Paul Starts Building New Home in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -After blessing the land, turning the ceremonial first shovels of dirt, and a few snapshots to mark the occasion, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Tuesday began work on its new home in Pasco.

The 16,000 square foot building will cost about $1,500,000, but fundraising chairman Pat Roach says they're already halfway to reaching their goal. 

"People in the community are very generous when it comes to helping the poor or the needy, people without food. They step up," Roach says.

The organization must move out of its current location on West Lewis to make way for the city's new overpass. The new building will be located at 215 S. 6th Street.

Saint Vincent de Paul helps about 700 families with food, clothing and other services.
