Clothing Donations Halifax

Donate Clothing & Accessories

When you donate clothing, accessories and other accepted items to The Compassionate Closet in Halifax, you support Hospice Halifax, which is dedicated to providing the best end of life possible for patients and their families.

We accept clean, gently used or new men’s, women’s or children’s clothing, accessories including purses, wallets, scarves and shoes/boots as well as jewelry!

Important Donation Information

Only on Wednesdays from 10am - 5 pm

Donations are accepted during business hours on Wednesdays only from 10 am to 5 pm.

Only Around Back (Not in the Shop)

We have a designated drop off area around the back of the store (find us here). Our parking lot loops all the way around and you will see our storage container and drop off area! Pull up beside the container and the yellow guardrail and ring the doorbell to speak to one of our volunteers or staff to successfully drop off your donations. 

Must Be in Bags that Can Close

All items must be in bags that can be fully closed. Recycling and garbage bags are great! We do not accept boxes or clothes on hangers. 

Do Not Leave at Door

Please do not drop and leave your donations outside of business hours or when we are not accepting donations. We are unable to keep them and they will have to be disposed of at the cost to our charity (which adds up very quickly!).

Give to a Staff or Volunteer

We will help you with your donation. If you have donated previously and have an account with us, you only need to mention your First and Last name! That is how we identify you in our system. If you have never donated with us before and wish to create an account be sure to let the person you speak with know and they will gather all the needed information.

No Hangers

We do not need or use plastic or metal hangers. They become a waste for us. Please ensure all donations are in bags only.
