Why Donate Your Clothing?
People often wonder why a volunteer based organization needs funding at all. The reason is simple: matching children with positive adult role models requires screening, training, and monitoring. Given our vision is to put a mentor in the life of every child who needs one, funding plays an ever important role in our success as well as the development of children in our community.
Through a partnership with Value Village, and our new online marketplaces found at Island Treasures, all items YOU donate generate much needed sustainable revenue for our programs. Also, otherwise unused items are given new life and diverted from the landfill.
We strongly encourage you to get involved and help our kids get matched with mentors!
Our Clothing Donation Centre proceeds are used for:
- Volunteer screening and training
- Monitoring friendships
- Volunteer recruitment
- Quality assurance
- New program development
- Marketing and solicitation for donations
