How To Donate
PLEASE NOTE: PLEASE NOTE: We have temporarily suspended all gently used bra collections at our store due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19. We will re-start our Supportive Start Program when it is deemed safe to do so. We will continue to drop off any gently used bras and hygiene items we have on-hand to organizations who reach out and are in-need. We will not be conducting any fit clinics at this time. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
Does your bra no longer fit? Do you have a bra you never wear? Is it still in good condition? Donate them to Supportive Start! As bras are such a personal item, many women never think to donate bras when they donate clothing. Often, perfectly good, usable bras end up being thrown out.
We are so excited to be able to offer our customers a way to recycle their GENTLY used bras in a way that will positively impact the lives of women in our community as well as being environmentally friendly and keeping new and nearly new garments out of the landfill.
What can I donate, and what is GENTLY used?
We always like to say that GENTLY used means that if you would feel good about giving that bra to your best friend, then you should donate it to Supportive Start. If you would be embarrassed to pass it along to your BFF, then maybe it’s time to toss it.
The women that we serve with our Supportive Start program may be at a tough time in their lives, so our aim is to treat them with dignity, and part of that means fitting them with bras that we are proud to give them.
- -Bras must be clean and free of stains
- -No pilling, discoloration or deodorant marks
- -Not stretched out or altered
- -No holes or runs
- -Hooks must be in good condition
- -No odors or smoke
What type of bras can I donate?
We are looking for bra donations of all types. Everyday, underwire, non-wire, push-up, nursing, sports, bralettes…Just like you and I, the program participants love to have choices with the types of bras that they can choose from at our fit clinics and they all have different needs and preferences that we like to be able to fulfill.
We accept bras of any brand, size or color. They do not have to be from our store.
We are always in need of smaller sized bras (28 – 34 A & B’s)
If you don’t have any bras to donate, but would still like to make a contribution to our program, we will graciously accept monetary donations*
If you have any further questions, please contact us in-store at 604-532-1933 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
