Simply put: to help low income families get what they need to live more comfortable lives.
In the current economy, many are doing without the comforts and necessities many of us take for granted. All donations that are picked up are given out free of charge. No money ever changes hands. To date, over 200 families have been helped directly, many drop in centres and homeless shelters, and more than 350 families have donated their new or used items (clothing, shoes, boots, toys, furniture and other household items) to this cause. The city of Prince George really cares, just as Ivy does. Well done Prince George!
Our service is unique in the way that it is targeted; items are picked up, sorted out and distributed with care. Those with unwanted items can easily donate them, and those in need can receive the specific items they need. Many of the lowest-income earners have no way to transport donated items, and Ivy fills this gap beautifully. [READ MORE]
