Diabetes is a serious disease that has reached epidemic proportions in Canada, currently one if four Canadians are living with diabetes or pre-diabetes, this number is expected to rise to one in three by the year 2020.
The donation bin program collects gently used clothing and small household items from generous donors. All proceeds raised directly support Diabetes Canada’s innovative diabetes research and its 12 medically supervised D-Camps that help 2,000 Kids annually. Each year this program diverts more than 46 million kilograms of reusable clothing and household items from our landfills.
Items that are accepted include: clothing, belts, hats, bags, mitts, shoes, stuffed toys, linens, towels, blankets, drapes, bedding, pillows, sleeping bags, etc.
The bins will be located between the Community Hall and Scouts Hall.
