“The Friendly Octopus”?

We call our Thrift Shop “The Friendly Octopus” because it reaches out to so many in our community. The Thrift Shop team is extremely proud of one its main roles: to provide clean, appropriate clothing and usable items to various groups in the City, including Our Place, the Compassionate Resource Warehouse, Shelbourne Community Kitchen and the Victoria Women’s Transition House.

Our team of dedicated volunteers sort, launder and iron donated clothing, clean household goods, and test the electronics and mechanical goods before setting them out in our shop or sending them on to non-profit agencies.

New volunteers are always welcome!
