Colder weather is looming, and we’re hosting a clothing drive for warm winter clothing for New Circles.
An estimated 8,500 people will go to New Circles over the next six months for winter clothing. You can help “Keep Toronto Warm” by donating gently-used coats, jackets, snow pants, snowsuits, winter accessories, or any good quality, seasonally appropriate clothing.
New Circles helps newcomers, refugees and others living on a low income meet their basic clothing needs.
We will be hosting a clothing drive at our Coffee Tent at Withrow Park during our last two farmers’ markets on October 5th and October 12th. 9am to 1pm rain or shine!
Your donations help reduce textile waste and helps the environment – giving your used clothes a second life outside of a landfill. ♻️
• Sweaters, sweatshirts, long-sleeved shirts, pants, leggings, long underwear, and any type of seasonally appropriate clothing
• Winter coats, jackets, snow pants, and snowsuits
• Boots and other warm footwear
• Accessories like hats, gloves, mittens and scarves
ALL ITEMS MUST BE:
Clean and in good condition.
We can not accept items that are ripped, stained, or are in need of repair.
Thank you for your understanding!
