2021 We Continue To Do What We Can For Everyone, including the environment.

DONATE & GIVING BACK It's a circle that works for everyone
At SECOND CHANCE Clothing and More we are all about giving back to the people, helping the community and doing all we can so there is less landfill to protect the environment for a better tomorrow.

Here is the list of most of the charitable organizations we are sponsoring throughout 2021 and 2022...

Sick Kids Hospital Building Fund

Holland Bloorview Children's Rehabilitation Centre

Million Dollar Smiles

Ronald McDonald House

Princess Margaret Hospital

Mackenzie Hospital Building Fund

Saint Andre Bessette Let's Build A Church Building Fund

Speaking Of Dogs

Adopt A Pet

NEW FOR 2021...

Bed Sheets and blankets are being donated to Live, Empower & Love .

Bath towels blankets are being donated to various animal shelters in and around the community.

Preloved shoes and boots, most will be donated to Soles4Soles https://soles4souls.org/

The list may grow throughout the year. Customers who donate their unwanted items can select from the list above which charitable organization they want the sales of their items to go to. If they have one which is not on the list, all they have to do is tell us where they want the money to go and we will make sure it goes to that organization for them.

We also use a portion of the money raised for the following events we have throughout the year... "Pay It Forward" and "Give Back" campaigns, "Challenges" on Social Media.

Result: Everyone wins with what we do.

Last, with all the donated items we receive, many of them could have otherwise ended up in the landfill. The average person in North America throws away 70 pounds of textiles every year. That’s 21 billion pounds of extra waste dumped in our landfills every year! And the EPA estimates only 15% is donated or recycled.

Do your part. Donate your new and preloved clothing and accessories; shoes and boots; books and magazines; to SECOND CHANCE Clothing and More today.

No appointment neccessary for donation drop-off.

HOW YOU CAN HELP IN 2021...
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!   

2020 was a year of challenges because of COVID-19.  We changed our goals and objectives by providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to hospitals, sharing our items to shelters, food banks and people living on the streets as we could possibly do with all the safety measures and precautions. We did what we can for the people of our communities and we will continue to do this throughout the remainder of the pandemic.

2021 is the year of hope, change and new beginnings. There is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. It's quickly approaching. As we get there, we will do as much as we can to give back to the community.

As things get better, we will once again be able to give more to the charitable organizations and fundraising events. Until we get there, people need our help more than ever!

It is not only the people. We gave bags of towels and blankets to animal shelters. We redirected people to give to women's shelters and other organizations for the homeless and immigrants and families who were in a tragic circumstance and needed assistance.

The only reason we can provide so much, is because people are giving us so many things. It's' a circle that continues to grow and everyone wins.

Things that could have ended in the landfill are being repurposed and are helping so many in return.

It all starts with people like you.

Don't throw it away.... Give it to us. We are accepting clothing and accessories, boots and shoes, books and magazines.

Thanks everyone for your continued support as we are always growing and looking for more ways of giving back.

We know the pandemic will continue throughout the first half of 2021. This is why we extended our list of charitable organizations through all of 2022 as well.

Stay safe everyone. Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Thanks for your ongoing support and your generous contributions.

Sincerely,

Carlo Gon
