    Hi Michelle:

    I have 4 sets of men’s hockey jerseys (20-22 per set) that I’d like to donate.

    They are in different colours, red,white,blue and gold.

    They are in prety good shape and would also fit teens.

    • Hi Brian, that’s wonderful! I have reached out to Urban Native Youth Association in Vancouver BC. They asked that I send them an email with the information. I just did and I have cc’d you on the email. If you haven’t heard from them in the next couple of days, maybe reach out to them to follow-up.

      Hope this is helpful,
      Michelle Beaupre
      p.s., please let me know how it works out

  13. Did the downhill Ski donation in 2019 work out? I’ve got some skis that also need a new home

    • Hi Rob, I don’t know what donation you are referring to, CharityWishList.ca doesn’t accept any donations of items. It is like a directory that helps you find charities near you that want what you want to give away. Then you contact them directly. You could try reaching out to https://recforkids.com for the Vancouver area.

      Hope this information helps; and thank you for wanting to find a new home for your equipment.

  16. My Dad has great set of golf clubs and bag..Love to donate them Thoughts:? IN Richmond BC

    • Hi Shasta,
      Thank you for your inquiry about donating your dad’s golf clubs and bag. For Richmond BC, I suggest contacting your local university’s or high school gym department. Or contacting your local golf club’s golf pro and asking if he knows of a dedicated golf student that perhaps can not afford their own set of clubs. Or you could donate to your local church for their yard sale.

      Or contact Richmond’s Boys and Girls Club:
      Address: 3800 No 5 Rd, Richmond, BC V6X 2T7
