What to Donate

Quality Clean & Gently Used Clothing and Household Goods – Items you would give to a friend or want to receive!

(undamaged items, no rips, no tears, no stains or chipped dishes/glassware please)  Please be sure the goods you donate are quality, something you would want to receive or give to a friend. It costs The Salvation Army to remove trash that has been dumped outside our Thrift Stores.  This diverts vital funds away from those who most need our support. Your understanding is appreciated.

Due to Health Canada’s Health & Safety guidelines, resale-ability, and store storage space, we cannot always take everything offered to us.  We are unable to accept mattresses, bathroom fixtures, doors & windows, broken furniture, car parts, paint, chemicals or hazardous materials.   Bike helmets, safety jackets, car seats, cribs, baby furniture over 5 years old or missing CSA stickers will also not be accepted.

Please note that due to the high volume of requests received we cannot guarantee same-day pickups.  While we will try our best to work with your schedule, pick up appointments are usually scheduled to take place within 5-10 days from the time of the initial phone call. However, schedules may vary based on location, time of year and the availability in your area.  Your understanding is appreciated.
