Recycle (Re-use) to Help Your Local Charities

Short on cash and time, but want to help your local charities?

Many local charities will accept functional items you no longer need as "gifts-in-kind". It just takes a bit of research. Check their websites to find out exactly what items you can donate.

A year ago, I discovered a vast array of items are accepted and re-used by charities I knew and trusted in my city (Toronto, Ontario). For example:
  • Art work
  • Books
  • Building supplies
  • Clothes
  • Computers
  • Food
  • Gift certificates
  • Hand-knitted clothes
  • Hardware
  • Household items
  • Medical and health supplies
  • Office furniture
  • Pet care
  • Points and airline miles from loyalty programs
  • Recreation items, entertainment tickets
  • School supplies
  • Toiletries and personal care products
  • Toys
  • Transit tokens
Who is helped by donating gifts-in-kind? Here's a sample:
  • Animals
  • Children & youth
  • Abused women & children
  • People who are homeless
  • Low-income families
  • People with disabilities
  • People with AIDS
  • Seniors
Take action:
  • Create a blog of charities in your city/town that accept gifts-in-kind.
  • Here's an example of a blog of charities in Toronto, Canada that accept gifts-in-kind. Quick links help you find items to donate, who to help, and names of charities. Each charity has a description of who they help, what they do, items needed, their location, and their website URL.
