As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the safety of you our customers, our employees, and volunteers remains a top priority. It is our responsibility to do our part to ensure everyone’s health and well-being, which unfortunately means our thrift stores in Kerrisdale and Steveston remain closed until further notice.
We are unable to accept donations of goods from our generous donors during this temporary closure to ensure the health and safety of our community. We ask you to please set your donations aside at home and bring them to the stores when we can re-open safely. Your donations will be needed then.
Our thrift store operations provide a significant amount of funding each year for the SOS Children’s Village in Surrey, where we continue to respond to the unique needs and challenges of our community during the COVID-19 crisis. Normally, you indirectly help kids in care and youth in need by generously gifting us your household items for sale and by shopping at our stores. Now that our stores are dark, you can help directly by donating cash to provide essentials like food, toiletries, remote education tools, virtual social connection, and other emergency support to youth in isolation. With your help, we can leave the light on for our youth who need it most: www.sosbc.org/donatenow
From all of the staff and volunteers at the SOS Thrift Stores, thank you. Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you in our stores soon!
