Donations of gently-used items and clothing can be donated to our Renew Crew program. The money generated from this service goes directly to support our mentoring programs.
By donating, not only are you supporting our programs, but you are helping our environment by diverting tons of reusable or recyclable items from the land fill.
All items collected are sold to Value Village, a second hand store in Kamloops. The company partners with non-profit organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) by purchasing and reselling donated items.
Value Village pays our organization a bulk rate for the items regardless of whether or not they are sold. This process allows BBBS to focus on collecting goods rather than having to undertake the expense of running a store.
Up to half of all donations are unsuitable for sale. Over 220 million pounds of clothing, shoes, linens, blankets etc. are shipped off to developing nations each year.
More items going to people who need them and staying out of our land fill!
Items you may wish to donate:
- Outer Wear
- Anything made of Fabric
The purple donation bins are located at:
- Surplus Herbies
- Canadian Tire
- Share Shed at the Williams Lake Landfill
Thank you to Kevin Daniels for picking up our clothing for us.
