Getting Started

Clothing drives are easy to organize and are a great way to pull a company, congregation, school groups, Girl Guides, Boy Scouts or any group together to help make a difference in our community. As a clothing drive organizer, there are a few things you should think about as you get started with your clothing drive.

1) Get approval from your company, school or group leader to hold your clothing drive.

2) Choose a date or dates and a location for your clothing drive.

3) Remember to contact us at 204-943-KIDS (5437) to let us know about your clothing drive.

4) Choose a high traffic area to place your clothing collection bins or boxes.

5) Advertise your event to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg via email, flyers, announcements, social media and memos – whatever works for your group.

6) Provide specifics on what types of donations are accepted. (See FAQs)

7) Set a deadline for collections and remind people when it’s approaching. This will help motivate people to submit their donations.

8) Schedule a FREE pick up!
