Are you looking for ways to raise funds for your school or organization? Try holding a clothing drive!

Community Living's clothing drive fundraiser is a unique type of fundraising event - one that pays cash to your school or organization for gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories. There is absolutely no cost to your organization or community to hold a clothing drive. Simply clean out your closets and we will pick it up on the day of your choosing. The more you collect, the more you earn!


Contact our office to let them know that you're interested in holding a clothing drive. We'll explain the process and our clothing drive coordinator will answer your questions and arrange a date and time for your pick-up. We will also send you an information kit and work with you to help you achieve your goal!

The best tool you have when planning a clothing drive is word of mouth! Spread the word via flyers, word-of-mouth, and social media to everyone you know - parents, students, co-workers, family members - and ask them to clean out their closets. Not only will they be helping you, but they'll also be keeping items out of the landfill and helping Community Living to support individuals with intellectual disabilities throughout the province.

Start collecting your clothing in the weeks leading up to your clothing drive. The earlier you start, the more time you have to collect for your pick-up. Pre-collection is key - don't wait until the last minute! Make sure all clothing and items are clean, re-usable, and bagged or boxed for easy pick-up.

On the day of your pick-up, a Community Living driver will come to pick up your bagged and boxed items. Everything will be weighed when it is unloaded the following day, and then all you need to do is wait to receive your cheque in the mail. It's that easy!
