GALLONS OF WATER SAVED

8.4 billion gallons of our most precious resource saved. Approximately 20 gallons of water are used to make every $1 worth of clothing.

POLLUTANTS KEPT OUT OF THE ENVIRONMENT

The production of clothing uses about 2,000 different chemicals. By reducing the number of items in landfills, we reduce the number of chemicals.

SAVED BY CANADIANS IN NEED

Clients receiving goods do not have to purchase them. This frees up scarce funds that can be used for other basic-needs such as food and shelter.

Alongside our clothing donation programs we also offer job training placements and workshops in our warehouse and dress shop.

VOLUNTEER HOURS
