Clothes for Homes

Posted: 20-Jul-2021

Is your closet bursting with clothes that are no longer needed? Clothes that don’t fit? Not your style anymore? Kids outgrew yet another size?

Donate your extra clothes to a Habitat ReStore in Lindsay or Peterborough and help Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region build decent and affordable homes in your community.

All kid’s, men’s, and women’s clothing, purses, jewellery, and shoes accepted.

Live in Peterborough? Schedule your FREE pick-up in Peterborough by contacting donate@habitatpkr.ca or 705-750-1456.

When you donate your no longer needed clothes to a Habitat ReStore, you are reducing your carbon footprint by keeping them out of the landfill. Plus, the revenue generated by the sale of your clothes will help build decent and affordable homes for people right here in your community.

But that’s not it. Did you know that Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region has partnered with the YES Shelter for Youth and Families? We provide their clients with clothing items on a monthly basis that fit their specific needs for types, sizes, and styles of clothing required. We also provide vouchers for their clients to shop at the ReStore for housewares, furniture, and clothing items to set them up for success for school, job interviews, sports, and life. Learn more about this partnership.

It’s no secret that waste is damaging when it comes to our carbon footprint and the health of the planet. When you donate clothing to the ReStore, you are giving it a second life. If more people purchase donated clothing and the trend of thrifting continues to grow, fewer new items would need to be created. This would save on both textile waste and production.

So make room in your closets, dressers, and in your life, and clear out those items you don’t wear or need anymore! When you donate your clothing to a Habitat ReStore, you’re not only decluttering your space, you’re giving someone else the opportunity to enjoy your items AND, you are supporting the building of much-needed affordable housing in your local community.
