While we make sure to launder or steam clean all of our donations for the dignity and peace of mind of our customers, we appreciate so much that our donors are committed to handing down clean, gently used clothing for us to pass on.

We are so thankful that many of you have been asking what they can do to make the donation process easier during this time. So here are some requests from our staff!

  1. Please use the appointment scheduler below to make an appointment. We are available Tues-Sat for drop-offs between 10am-4pm, and it helps us immensely if we know how many donors to expect!
  2. It helps so much of you are able to pre-sort and label your donations according to type! See below for a list of categories that we have.
  3. Consider signing up as a volunteer to see firsthand our processes and to multiply your giving!

Donations can be made directly to our warehouse around the back of the store, accessed through the parking lot. Please do not dump your items on the property, but connect with a staff member by ringing the doorbell! If you cannot arrange to be there during our regular donation times (Tues-Sat 10am-4pm), please email doubletake@ysm.ca to make alternative arrangements.
