Renew Crew helps community members reuse and recycle clothing, textiles, and small household goods. As a business of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central and Southern Interior of BC, we collect donated goods and resell them in the thrift retail market and recycling market. The proceeds from this social enterprise fund our school based programs that help more than 3000 children.
The Renew Crew is one of the most successful social ventures, generating funds for our vital social services. We collect donations through a combination of home pick-ups, on-site clothing bins for drop-offs, and targeted community clothing drives. Thanks to donors like you, last year we collected over 2.5 million pounds of clothing and generated over $200,000 in net profits for our vital social services.
The revenue generated from our used clothing program is crucial to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central and Southern Interior of BC. We use the funds to recruit, screen, train, and support volunteers, staff, as well as further develop our programs to meet changing community needs.
