Due to Health Canada’s Health & Safety guidelines, resale-ability, and store storage space, we cannot always take everything offered to us.  We are unable to accept large appliances, mattresses, bathroom fixtures, doors & windows, broken furniture, car parts, paint, chemicals or hazardous materials, bike helmets, safety jackets, car seats, cribs, baby furniture over 5 years old or missing CSA stickers.

Please be sure the goods you donate are quality, something you would want to receive or give to a friend. It costs The Salvation Army to remove trash that has been dumped outside our Thrift Stores.  This diverts vital funds away from those who most need our support. Your understanding is appreciated.

We do not accept fridges, stoves, mattresses, hide a beds, sofa beds. Please contact Habitat for Humanity at 604 402 1020, located at 44384 Yale Road Chilliwack. They will be glad to accept these items for you.
