Donations Make a Difference

  • 35,000 articles of clothing are given free of charge to people struggling with poverty and homelessness in the inner city each year.
  • Thousands of Thrift Shoppe customers depend on the affordable clothing and household goods monthly to support their low-income families.
  • All revenue from our Thrift Shoppe directly supports Bissell Centre programs, which are designed to eliminate poverty in Edmonton.

Goods We Need

We are in need of gently used summer clothing for men, women and children.


Bissell Centre’s Clothing Resources

Community Closet

Bissell Centre participants can access our Community Closet for free clothing and footwear. This volunteer-run program provides a dignifying shopping experience to over 5,000 people each year.

Family Closet

Similar to the Community Closet, our Family Closet provides low-income families with free clothing and footwear for adults, children and infants.

Thrift Shoppe

Our Thrift Shoppe, located on 118th Avenue, is a place for people to find affordable clothing and household goods. It is also home to our donation sorting centre.

“Bissell Centre has been an important part of my life living on the streets, and I feel without the work of the many volunteers here at Bissell Centre, much of the help I get would not be possible.”
