Media Advisory - Donate gently used clothes to the Yonge Street Mission

TORONTO, Jan. 11, 2016 /CNW/ -


The Yonge Street Mission's 18TH Annual Clothing Drive launches on Monday, January 18th in Toronto's PATH.  More than 6,000 bags of clothing are collected each year. 


Monday, January 18 to Friday, January 22, 2015


There are 20 locations throughout the PATH for dropping off gently used clothing. (Locations are listed below.)


The Clothing Drive supports Double Take, The Yonge Street Mission's thrift store. Double Take supports the community in three ways:

  • Provides first time employment experience to community members.
  • Provides gently used, high quality clothing at affordable prices to the community.
  • Through vouchers provided by The Yonge Street Mission's programs, low income individuals and families, and street-involved youth are able to shop with dignity for clothing. Thanks to the high quality professional clothing donated by business people working in the downtown office towers, many people are able to find clothing for jobs and job interviews.


"We are so thankful for the support of the clothing donors, our volunteers, and Brookfield Property Management for their ongoing and enthusiastic support of this clothing drive. Double Take relies on these donations in order to provide high quality, affordable clothing, which is of tremendous value to individuals living with poverty. Also, Double Take provides invaluable employment for community members."
