Reuse your online shipping boxes in which you have received your purchases or any other cardboard boxes you may have – to donate any gently used clothing and small household items. By giving your cardboard boxes a new life, you will be changing the lives of children and youth in your community.
When you receive your online shopping items, don’t toss out the box! Instead, use it to help give to Big Brothers! All you have to do, is
- Fill your shipping boxes with reusable items you no longer need (clothing and household items)
- Book the pickup here.
- Mark the box(es) with big BB letters so that we know that they are meant for us
- Leave it outside your home before 8:00am the morning of pickup
- Our truck will stop by during the day to pick it up for you.
Why it’s great to fill a box:
- No hassle in tossing the box and no hassle in cutting it up
- You are not only helping the environment, but also helping fund local charity’s mentoring programs in your community
- Not only will you be able to donate items that you are no longer using, but we will be recycling the box for you as well
- Simply use our free home pick up service to get rid of items you no longer need or like anymore
Mentoring makes a difference. So do your donations. Every time you donate used clothing or small household items to Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver, you are supporting mentoring programs for children and youth. With a positive role model, a child can gain a sense of belonging, a reassurance of their strengths, and more importantly – a child can be inspired to reach their full potential. Of course, for us to reach our goal of making sure every child who needs a mentor has one – it takes time, effort, and support of the community. In fact, the wait list for these programs can be up to two years. The only barrier to helping these children is the lack of funding and volunteers needed to support them. Every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential.
In with the new, out with the old. It is much easier than you think to make a difference.
