***SPECIAL NOTE***

We can only accept car seats made AFTER January 2012 that are clean, complete and have never been in an accident.

We CAN NOT accept broken or non working items. We do not have time to fix or repair them and end up having to pay the dump fee out of our own pocket.

Due to space limitations, we try not to take larger baby items, including exersaucers, swings, strollers (umbrella ones are okay).If you have larger baby items to donate, please contact us first as we may have a client waiting for such an item.

We no longer accept VHS movies. As many people no longer have access to VHS players, there is limited need for VHS movies.

While we try not to accept larger items, when we are asked to take the leftovers from a kids swap, we do everything in our power to leave the facility completely clean. This means that we often end up with items that we normally don’t accept. We do everything we can to help these items find homes, and you can often find them posted for free on our fan page.

Free Clothing BC is a not for profit organization. As such, from time to time, we will be launching fundraising sales and auctions. Donated items that are not suitable for distribution at our events, including fine china, furniture, some electronics, and jewelry will be used to fund purchasing new socks, underwear and undergarments.
