How we help give back

DONATE & GIVING BACK
At SECOND CHANCE Clothing and More We are all about giving back.

We give back to you, our customers, by giving you the best items at the most reasonable prices possible.  Customer service is very important and we do our best to please each and every one of you.  We encourage feedback and reward your time by giving discounts on future purchases online in our VarageSale store.

Items you buy from us our new and gently used merchandise.  These items could've ended up in the landfill, or you will be surprised what happens to the majority of the items you put in donation bins, or bringing the merchandise to places like Value Village  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/donated-clothing-where-it-ends-up-1.4662023

When we receive your donated clothing and accessories, items are sold in our VarageSale Store. We keep the first dollar of every item sold in our VarageSale Store. The rest of the money goes to charitable organizations, fundraising events, our own "Give Back" and "Pay It Forward" campaigns, our own unique Social Media Challenge and toward future projects we plan for the communites.

We are trying to do as much as we can for the communities in Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA)

The charitable organizations we give back to include the following: Sick Kids Hospital Building Fund, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Million Dollar Smiles, Princess Margaret Hospital, Saint Andre Bessette Let's Build A Church Campaign, and Dogs Without Boarders.

Fundraising events include car shows, community barbeques, and weekend festivals in and around Toronto and the greater Toronto Area (GTA, GTHA) 

You will be happy to know that the items you donate to us are not sent overseas, like many other clothing donation companies. We operate from home. We can do a lot more and the best feeling is doing what you can for everyone. This concept, we are all doing our part and it's easy for people to get involved and we are also helping reducing landfill by reusing things... Simple.

Our "News & Events" section will show you articles and videos of other companies and what happens to the items you think were being "donated" We want to ensure you we are going above and beyond everyone else... we always will.

As we continue to grow, students who need to put in hours for graduation will be able to help out by sending out flyers, posting items and being part of the experience.

Thanks everyone!

    Not only are we going to continue to give to charitable organizations and fundraising events, we are also going to support as many community festivals and projects, help people who are in an emergency or crisis situation and need funds to get themselves back on their feet... and other surprises, to be revealed at a later time!  

HOW YOU CAN HELP
We'd love to tell you more

If you are a business owner who can give gift cards or new merchandise we can give to individuals or families, we need your help.  You will be acknowledged on our web pages and all our social media sites as well.  People who have a skill and can volunteer an hour or more of your time, please let me know of what skill(s) you have and what area(s) you would be willing to travel in to help people out.  Last, anyone who has clothing and / or accessories they no longer use. 

We will accept anything you have!  New or used... It doesn't matter!  We keep the first dollar of every item sold.  The rest of the money goes to support everything around us.  It's better than having these ending up in the landfill, sent overseas, or shredded and used as rags.  

We keep finding ways to have everyone involved.  It's about GIVING BACK!  Together, we are ALL MAKING A DIFFERENCE!   

Thanks everyone for an amazing 2018.  The New Year brings new beginnings and changes for the better for everyone.
