How do I donate clothing?
Clothing can be donated 24 hours a day at our charity office at 1317 Speers Road, and also at 482 South Service Road East in the orange boxes behind the building in the back parking lot lane way. We prefer clothing to be donated in garbage bags as it is easier to place, and remove from donation boxes. Safetynet can do community pick-ups in the Oakville area for three, or more, garbage bags of clothing. We strive to do pick-ups within 24 hours, however, we rely on volunteers to do the pick-ups, and work within their schedules.
What type of clothing donations do you take?
Safetynet takes all clothing from infant to adult, business suits, shoes, bedding, and linens. Safetynet does not take used toys, or books.
What happens to donated clothing?
Donated clothing is provided free of charge to families that are struggling financially. Clothing with rips, stains, out of date, or that sits on the racks for a long period of time is bulk recycled to support our charity expenses.
