Spring Clean-Up Pays Off For HSH Participants


The Spring Clean-Up Donation FUNDrive to collect donations of used clothing, shoes, books, children’s toys, household linens and household décor was a huge success!

We began appealing for people to donate their spring cleaning goods back in April and collected through most of June - storing the donations at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Oakville, which donated two storage units to our cause.

On June 20, the HSH team and volunteers, like Mark and Sandy, moved the donations from the storage units to Value Village for weigh-in. There, the donations were unloaded and weighed.

Once the goods were on the scales, it showed we collected 2,014 lbs. of soft goods, 817 lbs. of hard goods, 409 lbs. of books and 10 large pieces.

HSH received the following for the items we collected:

Clothing: 20 cents per pound; Small housewares: 10 cents per pound; Books: 10 cents per pound;

Furniture: 5 cents per item; Other large items: 5 cents per item.

All funds generated - estimated at nearly $600 - will directly support HSH’s wraparound supports for single-parent families.

Thanks again to U-Haul Moving & Storage of Oakville for their generous contribution of two storage units for our donation drive! The support meant all donations to our drive were stored in their spacious and easily- accessible, climate-controlled units.

Thank you to everyone who took part by donating their goods to our cause.
