Collecting Clothing and Toiletries – Donation Drive Information
Basic life saving items of underwear, winter gear, first aid and toiletries are always needed at Our Place Society but we don’t always have the capacity without incurring the cost of storing and sorting. A more effective way to support vulnerable people with essential items is through the donation of gift cards from a local store or by donating the equivalent cost of the item through our online donation form (below) or by calling the Donor Hot Line at 250-940-5060. We can then purchase the items at bulk discount and get sizes, gender, style, etc. that is needed in the moment. Thank you for caring. Your donation will be transformed into Hope and Belonging at Our Place.
We encourage community groups to organize clothing or toiletry drives as a way of giving back and connecting to Our Place. We are happy to send our logo to you so you can to make posters to organize these events. We see increased success for these kinds of drives when the groups make a specific request or create a theme.
