Clothing Room Volunteers allow Calgarians impacted by homelessness to benefit from the constant flow of apparel donations the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre receives from the community. By helping to stock our Free Clothing Store, they ensure our clients are able to stay warm and dry. These volunteers thrive on turning chaos into order. They are organized, efficient, and don't mind a little bit of heavy lifting.

Did you know that the Drop-In's Donation Centre serves as a hub for a variety of needs of both DI guests and Calgarians receiving support from a variety of non-profits throughout the city? Unlike our other volunteer opportunities, the Donation Centre is perfect for all ages. You and your group will sort through community donations and ensure that vulnerable Calgarians get the items needed for a chance to break the cycle of homelessness.
