Just a question.I usually donate kids clothes and toys to St Vincent or I drop them off at Value Villiage.I was just wondering if there was a place that I could bring it to where it was not sold but went directly to people that need it without anyone having to pay for it.

Salvation Army would be the best or Women in Crisis.

I still have a bag of coats for kids women and youths, maybe I can drop it off there at WIC. Is it still on Oakland?

I always bring all items to Salvation Army..they sell for dirt cheap vs the place on Norther Ave.The Salvation army has helped me in the past in countless ways and continue to help countless thousands here in the Sault..

Would Women in Crisis take baby formula and baby food? I have a bunch here I'm never going to use.

The Health Unit at 126 Queen, down from the bus terminal takes childrens clothes for their kids closet that they have. They are not sold and offered to anyone I believe. There are a lot of moms that participate in programs there. I just dropped off some of my kids clothes there not long ago.

Not ALL but a lot of the people that get these are people that really need it. Young mothers or low income families. I would donate to either the WIC or the The Health Unit.

They will take the formula and baby food. They take very few if any toys, but infants clothes are a real godsend to some of these low income moms. I used to bring my sons baby clothes there, and then I had another son. So they go through 2 then go.

YOu can always drop things off at the Soup Kitchen on james St. Always free,,,lots of families with babies and they have a chidlren's program, so the toys can be either given to the program or sent home directly with the children. They may even do a pick up if you call. They are always looking for formula, diapers, clothing and toys for the children.

Last year, I had some stuff to donate for kids. It was pretty much clothes so I called the Fire Station and asked if there were any families in need of clothes etc. They didn't know of any at the time, but they took them anyway for when there are families in need.

The Diabetes Clothsline program has an agreement with Value Village. Clothesline picks up any unwanted household items, and Value Village sells it. The money raised goes towards research and funding. So it's not like the money made by Value Village is just profit for the owners.

the health unit has a good comunity closet which is free, the community center/soup kitchen on james st will take any second hand stuff and make sure it goes to the people who need it. i remember when i was doing volunteer work there, i got to give the stuff out to the kids and they'd be so happy to get new shoes and stuff.

Actually that is not how it works... The diabetes picks up clothing and stuff and drops it off at value village.. value village weighs it and pays them per pound. I don't konw how much per pound but it is not alot.. What value village sells and everything goes towards value village and their proffits...

I thought Value Village donates their profit to charities. Does anyone know for sure?
