What is Community Living?
Community Living is a non-profit organization that collects used clothing and small household items throughout Saskatchewan. Started in 1989, we are the fundraising branch of Inclusion Saskatchewan (formerly the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living). You may have seen one of our yellow bins in your neighbourhood or received a call from one of our callers asking for donations!
Where do I donate?
How do my donations make a difference?
All items that you donate to our bins, leave at one of our drop off locations, or have picked up from your home are sold. The proceeds are then used to support individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families in Saskatchewan by funding programs run by Inclusion Saskatchewan (formerly the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living). These programs are aimed at ensuring that individuals with intellectual disabilities in Saskatchewan are valued, supported, and included members of society.
