Accessories

If you’re planning to redo your home, get rid of old baby stuff or change any accessory in your house, don’t dispose of these items as they may indeed help many families who can’t afford to buy them.

Organizations to consider
  • Entraide Diabétique of Quebec : Entraide Diabétique of Quebec raises funds to help Diabetes Quebec. To do this, they collect clothes and used items in good condition and re-sell them at a reduced cost. All proceeds are then given to Diabetes Quebec to help fulfill its mission of helping people with diabetes directly and to promote research.
  • La Maison du Père: La Maison du Père is a refuge for homeless men aged 25 and over and the dedicated team offers men the necessary support to overcome homelessness through rehabilitation programs and social support. Money, clothes, food and hygiene products are also needed.
