Beginning Monday, May 4th all six thrift store locations, Delicious By Design Catering, and our SMH Car Wash & Detail Center, are opening back up.
What does this mean for St. Matthew’s House Social Enterprises?
St. Matthew’s House social enterprises will be reopening Monday, May 4th under Governor DeSantis’s Phase 1 plan for reopening the state.
We will be following all social-distancing guidelines within our operations, including maintaining a limited store occupancy, 6-feet of separation, masked employees, regular disinfecting, and more.
You can support St. Matthew’s House by shopping at our thrift stores, donating your furniture, hiring our catering company, and taking advantage of our hand-wash and detail center.
While things may look a little different than they did before, we are excited to resume serving the good people of Southwest Florida by offering the best thrift store, catering, and car washes in town.
We still need our help!
We are seeing over a 1,000% increase in people seeking our help—and we are still at the beginning of the current economic crisis. Over the next few months, we anticipate an unprecedented surge in need as people find themselves making hard decisions in order to make ends meet: Pay rent or buy groceries? Go to urgent care or pay the mortgage?
St. Matthew’s House stands ready to help those struggling by providing resources to meet basic needs: groceries from our mobile pantry, hot meals from our soup kitchens, and—in the direst of circumstances—shelter for those who find themselves homeless. The people St. Matthew’s House serves—the working poor—are the first and hardest hit by the economic turmoil we are experiencing right now.
- We recently started a community prayer page. Please consider praying for the St. Matthew’s House community. You can add your own prayer request to the page by clicking here.
- We still welcome donations of food, hygiene supplies, laundry detergent, diapers, and monetary support at our main boutique thrift store and mobile pantry at 2601 Airport Rd. S., Naples, FL 34112. Just drive through our designated donation drop-off lanes Monday through Saturday, 8AM to 4PM and St. Matthew’s House staff will unload your trunk for you. No need to get out the car!
