Go on-Donate Those Unwanted Clothes


Every time you donate your unwanted clothing to The Salvation Army, you are helping fund programs right in your community.

With more than 300 nationally and locally operated Thrift Stores from coast to coast, The Salvation Army operates one of Canada’s largest national clothing recycling operations.

Every time you choose to donate your unwanted clothing or household items instead of discarding them in the trash, there is a circle of benefits realized. Your donation positively impacts:

• Programs that serve families and individuals from all walks of life
• Customers who rely on access to quality goods at great values
• Waste reduction

Like every other store, Salvation Army Thrift Stores are cleaned out during the Christmas season. There is no spring line unless you become involved.

The more you give, the more the community gets!

Asides from the Thrift Stores, are there donations bins deployed in Ottawa?


Only 2 of the locations listed are in Toronto.
Do you have any in North York?
I can’t find one and I don’t trust any of those generic ones.


I have a working 32″ Sony TV – Flat screen (Not LCD) to be donated but need to be picked up. Would Salvation Army do that?


My Leadership 10 friends and I want to have a clothing drive at school for the Salvation Army this fall. How would we get the clothes to you after getting them in, and are there any specifications about the donated items?

Some of the income goes directly back to the local community Salvation Army social programs and some of the income goes to the national Salvation Army for special community-related programs and projects.


Hi, also wondering where to dontate in Oakville? The store on Kerr Street? I have some gently used shoes and coats that I would like to donate.

A link has now been added to the above article which will take to you to the Thrift Store site where you’ll find links to different parts of the country.

For food donations, please contact your local Salvation Army Public Relations office, either in your phone book or use the “Locations” link at the top of our main page.


Thanks, looking for someplace to keep fabric(s) no longer good enough to wear; out of landfill. Or sheets that are still good.

For years, Take lived his Canadian dream. An immigrant from Japan, he was a self-employed auto mechanic in Vancouver and enjoyed Canadian culture. Life was good. Then, in an instant, everything changed.
