Re-Source York appreciates donations of time. Most of our volunteer opportunities are physical (i.e.: moving furniture, cleaning items, organizing shelves), so come ready to work!
As a non-profit organization, we appreciate financial donations to help support our mission. Your tax-deductible donation helps offset our operating costs of both our home goods and home improvement facilities so we can continue to provide support to our community in meaningful ways.
Benefits of donating money:
- Warm and fuzzies: Financial donations to non-profit organizations give you all the feels. In fact, research indicates that donating money triggers pleasure centers in the brain. Science!
- Tax deduction: Since Re-Source York is a non-profit organization, your cash donation is tax-deductible. Check with your tax preparer, of course, for advice, but you can save at tax time with your donation. Bonus!
- Teach kids the importance of giving: Teaching our children to care for others and to be generous when able is an important lesson we can share in our community. Charitable giving can help you be a great role model for kids in your life – it’s a win-win!
HOW MONEY IS USED:
- Vocational training: Donations of money allow us to continue to provide vocational training and transitional employment for people enrolled in Employment Support programs through Bell Socialization Services.
- Direct support to our community: Every quarter, Re-Source York makes a cash donation to the Bell Family Shelter, the only shelter in the area that provides emergency housing for entire families. Our donations help fund one full day a month of operations at the shelter.
- Operating costs: Financial donations help offset the operating costs of both of our stores. When our operating costs are lower, we are able to reallocate our budget to other areas of focus for Re-Source York.
