Where to Donate Clothes During COVID [in Toronto]

Full disclosure: As we write this, we are hopeful the lockdown will come to an end some time soon, so that the options for donating gently used clothing increase!

Nevertheless, some of you call us and ask where you could donate your linens and clothing. We know that a lot of organizations are closed for now but we did some research and discovered that there are still places that are supporting vulnerable people in crisis! This way you can transfer your gently used clothes to those who need them and be sure that they won’t be wasted!

Where you can donate your clothes and linens now?

You can drop-off your donation in a bin or schedule a distanced pickup!

Depending on their warehouse’s capacity – contact them and make sure they can accept your donation at that time.

You can contact your local church asking if they are accepting any donations at that time – there are still plenty of people that we may help!
