      They may be able to help you.

      Or, maybe try Saint Vincent de Paul store email for assistance: assistance@ssvp.on.ca website: http://www.ssvp.on.ca/rc/assistance.php
      at telephone: 613-722-7166

      or ReStore WEST: 7 Enterprise Avenue 613-225-8400.

      If they can’t help you, you could try a church near you, perhaps they could ask their members if someone has a washer they could give you. I hope this information helps. CharityWishList.ca doesn’t collect any items so we have none to give out. It is a directory to help people wanting to donate items find charities that want to receive them. Best of luck. – Michelle Beaupre, Owner, CharityWishList.ca

  4. I’ve got washer, dryer, fridge and stove all in working condition, can drop off but only today.

  5. Hi I have a three seat couch leather type in great condition and the single chair, which organization could pick it up in Nepean?

  6. Used full sized oven in great condition (29′ wide)… Looking to donate asap but Im disabled (no way to support transportation). 613 255 5241 please call anytime, I’m home all day every day for someone to come pick up. Jenluc66@hotmail.com

      Hi Jenny, thank you for wanting to find a charity interested in your oven. CharityWishList.ca just provides contact information of charities near you that have shown an interest in what you want to give away, then you have to contact them directly to arrange for pick-up. For the Ottawa area, and an oven, I would suggest Habbitat for Humanity please call before donating – 613-225-8400 or 613-744-7769. Or Immigrant Women Services Ottawa – Shahnaz Perveen, Transition and Housing Support Worker Telephone number: 613-729-3145 ext. 231 And/or Christine Uwanyilgira, Settlement Counsellor 613-729-3145 ext 260. I hope this info is useful to you. Best of luck, Michelle Beaupre – Owner, CharityWishList.ca

  7. I notice that many services don’t want dishwashers, is there a reason for that?

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hi Lorraine, likely there isn’t a big enough demand for dishwashers to warrant charities collecting them and then having them take up floor space until someone wants it. As well it is not as obvious if a dishwasher is in good working order – hoses etc. so much as say a piece of furniture would be from simple visual inspection. And then there is the cost of transporting it and the weight. And the hydro cost for people to run the dishwasher – cheaper to do by hand. But you could try, for example, IMMIGRANT WOMEN SERVICES OTTAWA if you are looking to find a new home for a dishwasher … contact info: http://charitywishlist.ca/select-province/ontario/ottawa/appliances-kitchen-laundry/
      Thanks for your question,

  8. We are remodelling a room to convert to accessible bedroom with ensuite shower and toilet. That means the washer and dryer has to go. They are in good working condition. We don’t drive, so the Charity that is interested will have to pick them up. We would prefer a charity that will issue donation receipt for tax purposes based on fair value to help cover some costs.
    The appliances will be available in 2-3 weeks.

  9. Is there a charity in Ottawa that will:
    a) accept donations of washer/dryer, stove, etc. (all in good working condition);
    b) pick them up from my residence (in Gloucester, off Blair and Montreal Roads); and
    c) issue donations.

  10. Hi
    Does anyone know where I can get help with a washer dryer and fridge and stove in Ottawa I’m in serious need

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hi Roxy, I’ve been calling around for you … Salvation Army Thrift store doesn’t, St. Vincent de Paul doesn’t, but Habitat for Humanity has a stove currently, around $100 – they suggest you try them often as stock changes day to day. They are not free but relatively inexpensive compared to retail. City of Ottawa could have more resources to help you out …

      CharityWishList.ca is structured to help potential donors of items find charities that want what they want to give away. Unfortunately many charities do not accept large appliances as it is a hit and miss as to whether or not they will work properly. Best of luck.
