March 27 - Drop-in Donation Centre

The volunteer event at the Drop-in Donation Centre went very well. There were 33 participants who attended either a morning or afternoon shift. They were provided with a comprehensive tour of the facility which highlighted all the donated items they take in, how the donations are sorted and all the collaborations they have in distributing the various donations to their clients and to other charity organizations such as WINS, Inn from the Cold, Calgary Immigrant Society and even shipping items to Nigeria, South Africa and Central America. The group helped to sort large bins of donated clothing that were in ‘clothes mountain’. They made a sizable dent in sorting and packing the donations and made a valuable contribution overall.  Thanks to everyone who helped out!
