Evolve Caledon Donations

Evolve Caledon relies on your generous donations to stock our shelves. Without them we wouldn’t be able to reinvest in our community, by providing jobs, volunteer opportunities, and helping to fund other vital community services.

Donating to Evolve Caledon has never been easier

Our new single donation centre features a drive-through donation drop off and our friendly staff and volunteers are always happy to help unload your generous donation. Our Evolve Caledon Donation Centre is located at 109 Industrial Rd.
Donation hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 8:30 – 4:30.

Sometimes we are unable to accept donations due to their condition or health and safety concerns.  Staff are unable to accept items in poor condition, missing parts, banned / recalled by Health Canada or CSA, hazardous materials (e.g. chemicals or sharps) or anything potentially containing sensitive or confidential information.

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.

Thanks!
