Donation locations in Victoria, BC

One of the many perks about working with me is that any items you wish to donate, are taken away by me on every visit. You are not stuck with bags of unwanted items in your home or in your car for weeks on end. I try to keep up to date on what various organizations and charities are looking for or accepting and can donate your items accordingly for you.

I have been asked on many different occasions where I like to donate to, so I have compiled a list of the places in the greater Victoria area that you can take your unwanted belongings too! Do you know of an organization that I haven’t mentioned? Send me an email and let me know as I am always looking for different places to donate to.
