Spread The Warmth


Last week New Circles put out a call for help from the Toronto community to spread the word that their clothing bank GLOW needs winter apparel for refugees and those in need as the temperatures drop. Upwards of 150 people have come in looking for clothing to keep them warm and sadly they have had to turn away people due to lack of donations they are receiving.

New Circles and GLOW are asking that the community host winter clothing drives to help them out, so we are hopping on board. Until Nov. 30th, you can bring in your pre-loved winter apparel to all 3 of our locations and we will be passing everything we receive to GLOW.

Listed below are exactly what they are looking for:

  • men and women’s winter coats, especially plus sizes
  • children’s winter coats, snow pants and snow suits
  • winter boots
  • winter accessories, such as hats, gloves, mittens and scarves
