Evolve Caledon Donations

Both the Evolve Clothing and Lifestyle stores rely on your generous donations to stock the shelves. Without them we wouldn’t be able to reinvest in Caledon, by providing jobs, volunteer opportunities, and helping to fund vital community services.

Donating to Evolve Caledon has never been easier

Both Evolve Clothing and Evolve Lifestyle feature drive-through donation drop and our friendly staff and volunteers are always happy to help unload your generous donation.

Our Retail Operations team has the right to say “No Thank You” to unacceptable items. We need to consider the health and safety of staff and customers and the cost of disposal.
