Thank you for your interest in supporting foster kids and young moms. This page will be updated regularly, but we encourage you to call ahead to confirm as our needs change frequently according to our participants’ individual situations and the public health advice during the COVID pandemic.
Aunt Leah’s Thrift only accepts drop-off furniture donations by appointment at our Donation Centre. Please read below for details. Our youth and families will still be able to make arrangements to access emergency household items and have them delivered to their homes during this period.
Our most urgent needs at this time are:
All items must have all of their original pieces, be in working condition, and be clean and reusable. We only offer our participants the best experience with their move-in, items and furniture they can be proud of, and the chance to live independently.
What items do you NOT accept?
Aunt Leah’s helps to prevent children from foster care from becoming homeless and mothers in need from losing custody of their children.
We sometimes send extra donations to Other Partnering Organizations – homeless shelters and other social enterprises
Any broken or unusable items end up being recycled or dumped at a cost to the organization and affects the proceeds to the foster kids and young moms. Please donate accordingly.
The Donation Centre is open for donation drop-offs, including furniture, by appointment only. Most of our furniture is used to furnish the homes of the youth and moms in our programs, therefore apartment-sized furniture and appliances are highly appreciated.
