How Donations Are Used

We distribute goods to folks who are houseless as quickly as possibly by keeping our Community Space Closet stocked with basic need and seasonal items. If donations include items that aren’t practical for people who are unhoused, then they may be sold at Thrift Shops. Any profit made at our Thrift Shop goes right back into our programs, which further helps ensure needs are met.

Furthermore, there are many individuals and families who do not need to access Bissell’s services, but still struggle to make ends meet. They often turn to our Thrift Shops knowing they can get their needs met at a low cost. For this reason, unless there is a critical need at Bissell, we often keep a small selection of things like clothing, linens, toys, books, and small household wares, so that people throughout the community can get what they need.


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.
