Community Clean Ups

The Free Goods Program is partnering with Community Cleanup around the city

Spring is just around the corner, and many fortunate Calgarians who have a home to call their own are housekeeping and letting go of old items. If you are in the same boat and have items (like furniture, kitchenware, clothing, computers, mobile phones, small appliances, books, and more) to donate, please consider giving to the Free Goods Program. Everyone deserves a home of their own, and this DI program supports people in achieving this.

To help in this endeavour, the DI’s Free Goods Program will be at select City of Calgary Community Cleanups!

Is your community having a cleanup this spring? Talk to your Community Association and have them contact Community@thedi.ca if you’d like us to partner with your neighbourhood as well.

Your donated items help to provide low- and no-income Calgarians with the essentials they need to make a house a home – at zero cost. Help make Calgary a place that is home for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at one of these community cleanups!
