Did you know – Big Brothers Big Sisters, Diabetes Canada, The Salvation Army, and other organizations rely on your donations to help deliver their important programs and services across Nova Scotia?
As the long cold winter days settle in upon us, and the rush to get ready for the holiday season approaches, let’s think about the bigger meaning of the spirit of giving. Isn’t it about sharing our resources? And Sharing the Joy of what we have with others? Whether we’re baking, writing, sewing, assembling, wrapping, it’s the act of giving that satisfies the soul.
So as you race about, checking things off your list and figuring out the last things you need to do, please pause and think about sharing the joy of giving to many others.
And, if you have too many clothes, hats, scarves, shoes, etc, please consider donating them to our members at one of our donation sites. (Go to our donate page to find out where.) Not only will you help someone who needs these things, but you will help fund one of our important member programs that are critical to Nova Scotians. And, anything you donate will be put to use. If it can’t be sold, then it will be recycled into rags, stuffing, insulation or sold to other markets, and it won’t go into the landfill.
AFTeR members are all involved in the collection, reuse and resale of residential textiles. Our members live and work in Nova Scotia, and they are invested in supporting Nova Scotian people and their communities. Share the Joy across Nova Scotia!
