Community Sponsorship and Compassion

Each year we sponsor many local sporting events, clubs and organizations through advertising, product donations, gift certificates and by volunteering. We do this for many reasons other than advertising. We believe that it is important to build strong relationships with everyone in our community, especially our customers. Our community is made up of people with many interests as well as our own and our childrens’. We are lucky to live in such a vibrant and active area with so much to be involved with, and by being involved we not only enhance the quality of the events but we help sustain our local economy.

Our biggest contribution is working with and supporting an amazing and dedicated group of volunteers who tirelessly sort, package and send most of our unsold items to those in need. While some of the product makes it way to local charities, the bulk of it gets shipped off to third world countries, mostly orphanages. In the last year 175 largeboxes have been sent.

So remember if you item does not sell,  we are still insuring it will at least end up going to people truly in need.

Hard good such and sporting goods, toys and furniture usually end out at the Kimberley Reuse Centre if they do not sell at our store.
