We talked about what to keep. But I am sure, like me, you have lots of clothes, shoes, accessories you want to part with. If you don’t have an account at a re sale store, there are other options.
My friends Leslie and Carol Lee are involved in the Chinatown revitalization in Vancouver and they are opening a brand new thrift store there. See below for how to donate your gently used items. You may even be able to get a tax receipt.
Dear Chinatown Supporter,
The Vancouver Chinatown Foundation (VCF) is a registered charity dedicated to building a more resilient and inclusive community by promoting the wellbeing of those in need while preserving Chinatown’s irreplaceable cultural heritage. To that end, we invest in projects that focus on lasting positive change such as affordable housing and cultural and economic development.
The Chinatown Community Thrift Shop is one of those projects set to open in March 2017.
We are seeking donations of gently used women’s clothing, accessories (including purses, jewellery, hats, belts, etc …sorry, no shoes!) and home decor and housewares and collectibles!
Think of us when you are spring cleaning your closets…..we greatly appreciate any donations!
Please call or text Angela in advance at 778-892-8998 to meet you for a drop-off.
Donations will be accepted at:
127 East Pender
Mondays to Fridays
10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 – 4:00 pm
We are in need of donations as soon as possible!
Thank you for your support!
Vancouver Chinatown Foundation
Also starting March 27 St. George’s is taking donations of gently used clothing, purses and accessories for their annual fair. Drop off at the Saint’s Junior school starting March 27.
You can always call Canadian Diabetes or Big Brothers and they will pick up your items too.
Just remember if you won’t wear it again you don’t need to keep it and create closet real estate for items you will want to wear over and over.
Until next time…
