Toronto – The Toronto Charity Commission said it’s giving away $1,766,000 in clothing donations in the coming months, up from $848,000 last year.
“We are going to do the best we can for the people of Toronto,” said CEO Michael McLeod.
“We are getting the people who need clothing and they are being very helpful.”
Clothing donations were a major revenue source for the commission last year, but they’re not the only thing that’s going to be donated.
The commission also received a $2.3-million donation from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) this year.
That money will go towards purchasing a new fleet of bikes for the charity’s bike courier service.
The commission is currently seeking donations for an additional $1 million to help with an expansion of the charity vehicle and distribution centre in North York.
