28 Jul Diabetes Canada
Diabetes Canada is proud to sponsor this year’s CityFest in Toronto. Our reusable goods donation program has been serving Toronto residents since 1985. When you declutter and donate, you not only help to divert clothing and household items from landfill, your donation helps to support the 11 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes. Specifically, program proceeds have helped send more than 2,500 children and youth with type 1 diabetes and family members to D-Camps across Canada where kids meet and are inspired by each other to manage their diabetes well with the help of health-care personnel. Additionally, proceeds have helped fund $135 million over the last 40 years in Canadian research to improve the quality of life of people living with diabetes and to find a cure.
You can conveniently drop off your clothing and other textiles at any one of our many donation bins located in Toronto—and, we also do free pickups of clothing and household items right from your front door! To schedule your free pickup, you simply call 1-800-505-5525 or go online at declutter.diabetes.ca. Look out for us as we’ll have a diabetes information booth and clothing donation bins setup at CityFest 2017. We look forward to seeing you there!
