Diabetes Canada is reopening its collection of clothing and textile donation operations since shutting down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Residents are encouraged to donate any used clothing and textiles that they no longer need.
In Lethbridge, the reopening will kick off with a community-wide clothing donation event Saturday at the Real Canadian Supertore at 3515 Mayor Magrath Dr. S., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Diabetes Canada is making it easy to donate by offering a touchless curbside drop off event. Volunteers will collect bagged or boxed clothing and small household items from the car trunks of donors.
“We are very excited to resume our clothing collection operations in Lethbridge,” Sean Shannon, president and CEO of National Diabetes Trust, said in a news release. “The people of Lethbridge have always been extremely generous. We appreciate and thank donors who decluttered and stored their items at home while waiting for us to resume operations.”
In addition to the charitable clothing donation drive on Saturday, Diabetes Canada donation bins are accepting textiles and will be opened for household collection starting the week of July 12. People can schedule a home pick up or find a Diabetes Canada donation bin online at declutter.diabetes.ca.
