    All other sites (except Owen Sound, Parry Sound & Ottawa)

    • The truck will be at your site from 9:30 to 11:30 am


    Ottawa, Parry Sounds & Owen Sounds

    • These sites will not be participating in Repurpose as there are no MCC Thrift Shops close to your location

  • Where will the money from our donations go?

    The money raised through our donations will support the relief and development work of our long-term partner, the Mennonite Central Committee, here in Ontario and globally. The income garnered through all donations to the Thrift Shop composes approximately 30% of MCC’s program budget and helps sustain the incredible initiatives of MCC. Check out this video to learn more.
  • Can I help MCC sort the donations?

    Yes! Please contact Lynda Lynch (lyndalynch@mcco.ca) if you would like to help unload the donations we collect at their Thrift Shops on October 21 or October 28 in the afternoon. MCC also requires volunteers to sort donations throughout the year on a daily basis at all their Thrift Shops. If you are interested in volunteering on a continual basis you can also contact Lynda Lynch.
