Your Donations Make a Difference!

  • 2100 children and adults access clothing free of charge from Bissell’s Community Closet each year.
  • Thousands of Thrift Shop customers depend on the affordable clothing and household goods to fill their basic needs.
  • $195,000 in annual revenue from our Thrift Shop goes back into Bissell Centre’s programs & services that serve people experiencing poverty.

How Donations Are Used

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.
