During the COVID-19 pandemic several of Brandon's thrift stores have elected to temporarily close until further notice. This includes the textile donation bins throughout the City.
"As part of Diabetes Canada’s ongoing efforts to protect the health and safety of our valued donors, staff, partners and communities, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to temporarily suspend all collection activities of National Diabetes Trust. This means that the collection of ALL textile donations from homes and bins across Canada has stopped, effective immediately.
Please do NOT to drop off items at our donation bins as we are unable to collect them at this time. As life gets back to normal and we resume service, please keep us in mind and contact us at declutter.diabetes.ca for a home pick-up or to locate a drop-off donation bin near you."- Diabetes Canada
As you declutter your homes during this time please hold on to your donations as many of the charities will rely on it in the months to come when things calm down. Thank you for your cooperation.
