Clothing recycling system
an economic approach to making full use of clothing.
We ask that those minimizing their closets and shoe shelves consider a different way of getting rid of their unwanted things. 519Pursuit accepts clothing donations year round. Volunteers sort the donations and create care packages for the friends of 519Pursuit. Clothing that is suitable for street ware is sorted and stored in bins enabling the out reach team to remain consistent. Accessible shelving holds particular clothing as 519Pursuit volunteers visit friends encouraging the upkeep of good hygiene and self confidence. Clothing that could be of use at particular shelters (ex/woman,children) and supporting services are sorted and prepared for donation. The remaining items that do not fit else where are donated to the Mission Store on York St who a free voucher program to local families. The likely hood of you seeing your clothing be re-used is great for the turn over rate we have sorting and distributing them by meeting others where they are. 519Pursuit offers three great options prior to your unwanted items reaching a landfill.
By meeting friends where they are 519Pursuit runs an ongoing friendship based outreach team. Volunteers gather and take to the streets to distribute conversation and care packages.
