This year’s campaign is off to a roaring start thanks to your generous warm clothing donations!
In the 13 days since we’ve launched #bundleupyeg on November 1, we have collected 339 bags of warm clothing donations and distributed that clothing to Bissell Centre, Boyle Street, Hope Mission and The Mustard Seed!
You guys are blowing us away with your generosity and we are so grateful to be able to do this work.
We had a huge milestone on Friday, November 10, when our team collected and delivered 97 bags of clothing in three hours! For the first time ever, we were able to deliver clothes to all four of the shelters in the same day.
How to donate to us
We have 27 pickups scheduled for this week already, not including pickups from our collection boxes around the city. Just a reminder that we are operating until December 18. If you have a donation you’d like for us to pickup, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and a few dates and times that work for you. You can also bring your donations to one of our collection boxes if that works easier for you.
Thank you all for your outpouring of love and support. Let’s keep these donations rolling in! Last year we collected and delivered 510 bags in just under eight weeks and I think we are well on track to surpassing that number this year!
