How You Can Help

When people find out about Anney’s Closet, they always want to know what they can do to help. We have found three very specific areas where we could use help . . .

  1. Volunteer
  2. Donate
  3. Sponsor

Volunteer

Assisting with Clients

You will join a Soroptimist member and the agency worker to make each visit to Anney’s Closet productive and fun. Tasks include assisting our visitors to choose useful items for their home, wrapping up items and transporting them to vehicles.

Visits occur by appointment currently on weekdays only. We are looking at expanding to weekends and evenings as well – depending on volunteer availability.

Furniture Transport

Have a truck? We need your help! Our Transport volunteers deliver items for our visitors and also pick up donations.

Closet Organizers

Organizers help unpack and sort new donations. This suits people who love to create order out of chaos. Organizers help on our donation days which is currently the first and third Saturdays of the month from 9:30am – 11:30am.

Linen Team

The Linen Team help wash, dry and fold sheets and towels that are donated so that our visitors can choose fresh linen for their new home. They also label items for easy sorting at the Closet. This task can be done on your own time, in your own home.

Donate

We need a constant supply of “gently used, like-new” household items. Click here to find out what we currently need.

Email us if you have anything you can contribute. We’ll schedule a time for you to drop off your donations or if necessary make arrangements for pick-up.

Anney’s Closet does not accept clothing. We recommend you contact Wear to Start or the Victoria Native Friendship Centre to donate clothing.

We no longer accept donations of baby items. Please try our partner agencies, the Victoria Pregnancy Centre and the Single Parent Resource Centre to donate items for baby.

Sponsor

Partner with us and be a part of an amazing community project! We tell everyone about the help we get from businesses and we always look for opportunities to promote our Corporate Partners.
