FUNDrive for Chemainus Harvest House Food Bank
February 6 @ 11:00 am - March 31 @ 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating indefinitely
Community members are invited to drop-off gently-used clothing and household items at Kinney Clothing 2881 Mill Street in Chemainus BC for the first annual FUNDrive, to be held February 6, 2018 to March 31, 2018. Phone the store at 250-246-3541before drop off so staff can meet you at the back door.
The drive’s goal is to raise funds to support Harvest House Food Bank. Acceptable donations include clothing, shoes, accessories, linens, books, and small household items (no furniture).
Events like FUNDrives help us raise needed funds so there is food on our shelves to meet the needs of our community. All goods collected through the FUNDrive are sold to Savers, the parent company to great thrift stores like Value Village, Unique, and Savers. They pay us by the pound for every qualifying donation received. In turn, these items help keep their floors freshly stocked. Win-win for everyone!
