DAYTON — St. Vincent de Paul’s shelter has put out an urgent call for donations amid a record number of guests.
According to a social media post from the shelter, they are currently sheltering 600 guests each night, with 80 of those being children.
“It is heartbreaking for all of us that this is the highest number of nightly guests in our 37-year shelter history,” the post said.
The shelter says it is in need of sheets, blankets, towels, and washcloths.
People can drop off items at St. Vincent de Paul’s 24-hour donation dock located at 124 W. Apple Street or purchase items off the shelter’s Amazon needs list.
