Your donations of gently used clothing and household goods help us to:
• Reduce the environmental burden of the production of new goods
• Keep usable items out of local landfills and empower them to make a difference
• Generate funds to support local Salvation Army programs and services across Canada
Together, we diverted over 79.8 million pounds of clothing, household goods, and more from local landfills last year*
The average weight of an adult Canadian is 171 lbs, which means that the weight of clothing and household items we diverted is equal to 466,879 adult Canadians.
*in fiscal year 2021-22
This diversion resulted in:
of water saved
of carbon emissions displaced
Which is equivalent to:
removed from the road
