Donating

Thrift On Kent will be accepting donations starting Wednesday October 9, 2013 at 50 Kent Street in Kitchener.  Thrift On Kent will not be opening until October 28 for shopping, however we gratefully accept your quality donations before that time.

 

Donations can be dropped off at the rear of Thrift on Kent.  Our receiving area has a drive-up where a helpful volunteer can help to unload your donations. 

When donating items, it is very helpful if you pre-sort like items together.  All household items separated from shoes, separated from clothing.  This assists our volunteers when sorting.

All donations are sorted, priced and put out on the floor as quickly as possible.
