GLOW receives donations from hundreds of individuals, groups, retailers and corporations across Toronto, who want to promote health, self esteem, social inclusion and employability for those in need. Our donors help us divert clothing from landfills, reducing waste and improving the environment.
We welcome your contributions of clean, gently worn clothing. Donations can be dropped off any time during operating hours.
Please bring your clothing donations to the side entrance on Hobson Avenue (see map) and ring the doorbell. We will be waiting to assist you with unloading your donations. We are happy to offer a tour of our facilities and answer questions you have about our services.
We cannot accept items that are ripped, stained, out-dated or otherwise unwearable. We request that you review our Donation Guidelines below, prior to making a donation.
Occasionally, we may receive donations in excess of what we need to serve our current client base. At such times, we work with partner agencies to provide excess donated clothing to those who may not be able to access our services directly, but who would strongly benefit from free, quality clothing.
Please note: We do not issue tax receipts for donations of used clothing.
