Success in West County

Jan Falcon was at the center of a pivotal moment for the St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores.

Eight years ago, the society was operating just two locations — one at its old headquarters on Forest Park Avenue and a small shop in St. Charles. As the society began to look toward expanding on the thrift store program, it turned to parishes in the West County area in search of volunteers. When the store opened on Manchester Road in West County in 2010, it drew more than 145 volunteers from about eight parishes.
