Shopping

The gift of giving

Clothes

The clothes you don’t wear anymore can make other people happy and allow them to stay warm during the cold season. Don’t forget to include shoes, coats and accessories like scarves, hats and mittens. Because the majority of places don’t have the funds to repair your items, make sure you donate clothes that are in good condition.

Organizations to consider
  • Welcome Hall Mission : Welcome Hall Mission wants to fight physical, mental and spiritual poverty. Note that you can also donate money, food or goods and even volunteer.
  • Savers: When you make a donation to Savers, only items ready to be sold are sent to their stores to be sold at a reduced price. The majority of items that can’t be sold are sent to countries in development in order to help them to create their own market place.
  • Renaissance: Renaissance retrieves your good to support their program for social and professional reintegration of people experiencing difficulty in integrating the work place.
