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
No donations will be received during January, February and March 2023 at this time. We thank you for your generous, ongoing support.
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.
We do not need or use plastic or metal hangers. They become a waste for us. Please ensure all donations are in bags only.
