It’s spring cleaning time, an opportunity to take stock of what you have, get rid of things you don’t need and organize what is left. Rather than throwing your unwanted items in the trash, consider donating them to The Salvation Army.

When you donate to The Salvation Army you not only give back to the community you save quality goods from filling up landfill sites.

The Salvation Army operates one of the largest recycling programs in the world. In Canada, The Salvation Army recycles 100 million pounds of product annually from landfill sites.

Your donations also keep The Salvation Army at the front lines in local communities, helping people who need us most. Last year over $1.8 million in vouchers was given to low-income individuals and families to redeem for clothing and other items at a Salvation Army Thrift Store.

At The Salvation Army a donated sweater is not just a sweater. A donated sofa is not just a sofa. They can be the difference that gives someone a better tomorrow.

Salvation Army Thrift Stores support many programs and services provided by The Salvation Army such as emergency relief and shelter for men, women and the homeless, single-parent support, work readiness, and many more.
