Looking For Donations of Used Commercial Kitchen Equipment
Immediate Help Needed – Our Lead on a 3-Basin Dish Washing Sink Went Down the Drain!
This is our last required item for re-certification, and our lead on a used three-basin (wash, rinse, sterilize) disappeared. If anyone has, or know of, a used one, please let us know! All donations are tax-deductible.
St. Vincent de Paul has Reopened Its Community Center
When the daycare hosted out of SVdP’s community center was closed, and the space was converted to the Thrift Store Annex, the the commercial kitchen was decommissioned and all the equipment was removed. However, after the store was moved to the St. Vincent Store on Glacier Hwy. last summer, we have recommissioned the St. Vincent Community Center for meetings, trainings, events, and someday for rental use (as it was many years ago).
We Are Planning to Re-Certify Our Commercial Kitchen
While our staff has their food handler cards, and I have my food safety manger certification, we are in need of used commercial kitchen equipment – large and small. While all the original plumbing, exhaust hoods, grease traps, propane tanks, etc. are in place, all the equipment – stoves, ovens, dish-washing, pots, pans, serving equipment, etc. were removed. Any and all donation (tax-deducible) of used equipment would be appreciated. We can pickup from anywhere in Juneau.
The re-opening of the St. Vincent de Paul Community Center and Commercial Kitchen for community use will help serve our mission of helping those in need by providing a place for meetings, classes, and events. Proceeds from the rental space use will support our aid programs.
