Saint Vincent De Paul Society - A Youth Group Excursion.

This is a great idea for a youth group holiday activity.
Ask the youth to bring $20 to the youth group meeting.
Show some videos about the history of the Saint Vincent de Paul Society and then give them the quiz.

After this take them to your local Vinnies Charity Store and give them an hour to look around so they can purchase something. Ask one of the volunteers to tell the group how they sort through the clothes.

Afterwards have a show and tell about what every person purchased.

*Hint - Let the manager or volunteers at the Charity store know you are coming beforehand, perhaps they can explain why they volunteer there and where the money goes that is made by the store.
Take photos whilst you are there and then write an article about the activity and send it to the local paper of your diocese newsletter.
