We will give your previously-enjoyed items to people who are looking for a fresh start. Whether that's someone coming from another country looking to start over here in Canada, or someone who's entering a new phase of life who needs a bit of help, we want your donations to be purposeful and help others move forward. We connect with organizations supporting newcomers and others looking for a fresh start. Sometimes we know someone personally who can use your things; other times, we find a trusted organization to get your things to where they will be a good fit for someone else.
