CLOTHING BANK PROGRAM

Clothing Bank Program

Reducing Waste and Funding Communities.

 

Since August 2020, Vancouver Firefighter Charities’ Clothing Bank program has diverted more than 1.5 million pounds (680,000kg) of textiles away from landfills and into facilities where the unwanted textiles are repurposed. This program provides critical funding to our community-based Vancouver Firefighter Charities branded programs and helps keep our community sustainable.
