As a non-profit organization, donations of clothing & 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
• Provide affordable and accessible shopping options for all ages and sizes
• Generate funds to support local Salvation Army programs and services across Canada
As a non-profit organization, gently used donations of clothing & household goods help us make a difference for our communities and the planet we share.
Together, we diverted over 87 million pounds of clothing, household goods, and more from local landfills last year*
