New St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky Food Pantry and Thrift Store Coming to Cold Spring

St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky is bringing a new Campbell County food pantry and thrift store to Campbell County. 

Voted Best Wings in Greater Cincinnati. 1017 S. Fort Thomas Ave.  

The store is located at 3970-3972 Alexandria Pike in Cold Spring, Kentucky.  

SVdPNKY serves neighbors in need with emergency financial assistance and basic necessities across Northern Kentucky, including over 5,800 residents of Campbell County. According to a release, St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky believes this new location will make it more convenient for those living in Campbell County to access the basic necessities that SVdP offers as well as to support the organization with material donations.

St. Vincent de Paul already operates three other thrift stores in Erlanger, Florence, and Falmouth and two food pantries in Erlanger and Falmouth, operating solely on the donations of generous Northern Kentucky donors. The new location will be a place where residents of Campbell County can more easily receive help with basic necessities, with plans for the store to carry clothing, household goods and furniture.  The location will also serve as a donation drop-off site, where supporters can donate gently used clothing, furniture and housewares.  Lastly, the organization welcomes those who enjoy thrift store shopping as all purchases help support St. Vincent de Paul’s programs.  

This new location is part of the organization’s strategic plan to make their services more accessible in Northern Kentucky. 

“Access to the basic necessities we offer can be difficult for those we serve in Campbell County, requiring a drive to Erlanger, Florence or Falmouth to find what they need," said St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky’s Executive Director, Karen Zengel. 

"Our new location is centrally located in Campbell County and on the bus line.  This physical expansion of our outreach will make it much easier for our neighbors to access assistance with food, clothing and household items.  It also provides a convenient place for our material donors to drop off their gently used items.  We are very excited for this new opportunity.”

The new food pantry will open on March 1st and will be open three days a week on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Saturday’s from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Wednesday evening’s from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

The new thrift store is set to open mid-April.
