St Vincent de Paul Donation Boxes in Your Neighbourhood
You don’t need to come to one of our stores to donate your used clothing, household items, toys and other goods. You can drop them off at a donation bin near you. Just use our donation bin map to find the location nearest to you. For more information on our donation guidelines please visit our donations page.
New School Year Donations
Please keep in mind that even though the school year has just ended we need to think about providing school bags and appropriate fall clothing for needy kids during the back to school season. When you are going to be sorting out the left over school bags, pencil cases, gym outfits and art supplies from the last school year, what you can donate may help a child for the 2017-18 school year.
We accept men’s, women’s, children and baby clothing. St Vincent de Paul also needs any household goods, books, music cds, video dvds and electronics that might be lying around the house. Some of these items will be used to help those in need in the Ottawa area therefore please donate the best quality you can. If you have torn clothing we can often use that for our rag program. We resell the cotton and use the proceeds to help the community. Our Ottawa community thrift store also accepts used furniture in good condition. We can arrange home pick of your more cumbersome goods. Just call our store at (613) 722-7166 or by filling out the form at https://thrift-store.ca/donations/home-collection/.
Donation Bins Provide a Helping Hand
Donations are our lifeblood and every way that you can contribute allows us to continue to help the poor in our neighborhoods. Think about us when you are throwing away those old linens. Keep us in mind if you are updating your wardrobe and want to clear out some closet space. Some one out there needs your help and those used clothes could be just what fits the need.
