Donate Items

We are able to give kids a safe place to stay, clothes and food, and things to start over, because of generous, caring people like you. Thank you!

Donations of food can be dropped off 24 hours/day at our Drake Street (575 Drake Street) location. 

We are happy to accept donations of clothing and some house-hold items (sheets, small appliances, kitchen ware) between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm daily. 

Due to limited space, we can only take certain items for donation & would ideally like to discuss your donation with you before you drop it off (saving you a trip if the items you wish to donate are not suitable for youth 16-24).parkade picture

If you require assistance unloading, please be sure to call us at 604-639-8937 in advance so that we can be available to help you. 

Access to the building is available through the parkade located at the back of the building during these hours.

Our gifts-in-kind staff can be reached at (604) 639-8937.  After you have spoken with staff, please complete this form and drop it off with your donation at: 575 Drake Street Vancouver.

Due to limited space, we can only take certain items for donation and would ideally like to discuss your donation with you before you drop it off (this will save you a trip if the items you wish to donate are not suitable for youth aged 16 – 24).

Covenant House Vancouver does not operate a thrift store or resell the items that are donated. We sort through all donations received and if we cannot use an item, we re-donate it to Big Brothers and Developmental Disabilities.  All other items go to our clothing room for youth use and housing program.

We ask that all donations be clean, undamaged and age appropriate for youth between 16 and 24. If you are unsure if your donation is suitable, please contact us at 604-639-8937 or by email at acotton@covenanthousebc.org.
