We gratefully accept donations of toiletry items to be distributed to women who can benefit from this service. We only accept unopened items (any open items we must throw in the garbage). We also prefer full sized items as travel sized only lasts a couple of days for an individual. While we accept products that are scented, we also ask for scent free products as there an individuals who have scent sensitivities.
Here is a list of frequently used items:
OTHER DONATED ITEMS
If you have other items (furniture, clothing, household items etc), either new or gently used, that you would like to donate to Second Story, we ask that you please reach out to us here at the Centre first to check whether we can take the donation at that time. Unfortunately, because of a lack of space to store donated items at the Centre, we are only able to accept donations of items that meet a specific, immediate need of a women using the Centre's services. For example, if you have a couch that you are looking to donate, we would ask that you call us at 902-640-3044 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description or photo of the item, so that we can then check with our clients to see whether it is something they can use. We greatly appreciate being thought of when you have items to donate, and are thankful for the generosity that this community has shown our organization.
