  1. Martin J Conboy

    I run a design firm and we have numerous binders from old catalogues whuch we no longer require. Is there someplace we can donate these items?

    Thank you.

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hello Martin,
      Yes, I would suggest you start with contacting, if the binders are in perfect condition, The Caring and Sharing Exchange (Ottawa). https://www.caringandsharing.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=14&Itemid=160
      They happen be looking for donations of:
      Binder dividers and
      Binders: new, 2 inches or smaller, plain colored, containing NO corporate logos or markings.

      Or

      St. Brigid’s Summer Camp, they look for donations of items that can be used for crafts; so binders to keep the crafts in / could decorate the binders as a craft I think would be a perfect fit. Contact info on my webpage:
      https://charitywishlist.ca/select-province/ontario/ottawa/supplies-office-and-school-ottawa-area/

      Ottawa Boys & Girls Club might be interested. Contact info also at same link, as well as some other charities you could try like SASC Ottawa. Let me know how it turns out. If you try all the above and still have some left over, just let me know and I’ll see who else might be interested. Thanks for finding a new home for the binders instead of tossing! 🙂 – Michelle Beaupre, owner CharityWishList.ca

      • CharityWishList.ca

        Martin, for large donations, please call Caring & Sharing at 613-226-6434 or email them at info@CaringandSharing.ca so they can arrange for drop off or pick up the donated supplies. For small donation quantities, there is a list of drop off locations at the link I posted in my response above.

  2. Hello, The caring and Sharing web site link no longer works. Is there a new one.
    I have about 10 3-ring gently used binders to give and would be happy to drop off somewhere in Ottawa.

    • CharityWishList.ca

      Hi Suzanne, thank you, I have contacted the Sharing and Caring organization via Facebook. They were unaware of the website problem and will get it fixed as soon as possible. They would love to have the binders. Please contact Monique, e-mail communications@caringandsharing.ca , she is the Communications Coordinator, and is expecting your e-mail to arrange for a drop-off time. Thanks – Michelle Beaupre, Owner CharityWishList.ca

  3. Good afternoon,

    We are looking to donate some of our office equipment.

    We have 3 office chairs, in great condition, 2 tiered cabinet, a coffee table (a little scratched), as well as a gently used shredding machine.
    Could you recommend where I could donate?

    Thank you,

    Mélanie

    • Hi Melanie, thank you for your inquiry. My first suggestion would be to contact: OTTAWA BOYS & GIRLS CLUB

      “The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa graciously accepts some tangible gifts in-kind including furniture, supplies and gift cards. Please contact us to learn about our current needs.

      Telephone: Stacie Stephenson 613-232-0925 Ext. 222

      Melanie, last I heard they were looking for office chairs.

      Hope this helps. Please contact me again if you still need further suggestions.

      Thanks for wanting to find a charity interested in your items!

  4. I have many office supplies in good condition to drop off. Please let me know where. I also have 2 sofas in great condition but can’t drop off as I don’t have a truck. Someone would need to pick up and i’m in Gatineau (Aylmer). Please contact me kimmienath@gmail.com

    • Hi Kim, thank you for asking. I have left a voice message with Gatineau’s Grands Frères Grandes Soeurs de l’Outaouais (Big Brothers Big Sisters), to see if they would be interested/willing to pick-up from you in Aylmer. I will let you know as soon as I hear back from them, and then you would contact them directly to arrange pick-up time if you are interested. Hope this helps. Michelle, CharityWishList.ca

  5. I have a huge supply of scrapbooking items (Papers, inks, paints, embellishments, lace, buttons, etc.) that I no longer use (I haven’t touched it in about 5 years) and rather than go through the horrible process of selling it, I was wondering if you would accept it as a donation?
    I would have it packed in big Rubbermaid containers if you are interested.

    Please let me know if this is something you could use and want.

    Thanks!

    • Hi Linda, thank you for your offer. You would need to contact the charity of your choice directly (CharityWishList.ca is like a directory to help you locate charities near you interested in the type of item you want to give away. CharityWishList.ca doesn’t collect or accept anything itself.) I called Caring & Sharing Exchange to see if they would make an exception to their list of wanted backpack items for your arts & crafts stuff but they can’t accept items not on their list. They did suggest you try calling 211 and ask if there are after school programs that could use the items (great idea.) Also, on CharityWishList.ca there are options listed: for example, St. Brigid’s Summer Camp specifically looks for arts and crafts donation of items. And Boys & Girls Club might be a good one to try among the first to contact as well. I hope this is helpful. If you go through the list and call 211 and still haven’t found a taker, please let me know. I will look further for you. I’m fairly confident a new home can be found for your supplies. Especially with all the after school programs in Ottawa.

      Thank you for wanting to donate your items rather than sell or toss.

      All the best,
      Michelle Beaupre

  6. I had a small home business, my friend got sick and I was hi caregiver so between his care and my full time job, the business never really started (I used to do it in Toronto)….
    Silk flower arrangements are made with very good quality flowers (bought all from wholesale in Mississauga that are used by Florists). I still have about 40 arrangements very well made that could be sold to get money for charity. I also have several baskets and wreaths ready to use to make decorations..again could be sold for Charity.
    Do you know any organization that would be interested to pick the items up and have a sale for their charity of choice.
    The arrangements at a florist would probably go for $60.00 to $250.00
    Thank you

    • Hi Nancy, thank you for wanting to donate the flower items. Are you currently in Ottawa or in Toronto? I noticed you entered your question on the Ottawa page. Knowing this will help me to make the right suggestions for your location. Please let me know. Thanks, Michelle Beaupre, CharityWishList.ca
