Diabetes Canada: Curves Clothesline for Diabetes

Aug 8 @ 9:00 am - Sep 7 @ 3:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00am on Tuesday and Friday, repeating until Aug 20, 2017

During the month of August, donate your reusable clothing and household items at participating Curves locations across Canada to help lead the fight against diabetes!

The goal is to collect more than 65,000 lbs. of donated goods! These donations will help send more than 2,400 children and youth with type 1 diabetes to D-Camps, summer and family camps offered across Canada where kids meet and are inspired by each other to manage their diabetes well in a medically supervised setting. Donations will also help fund world-leading Canadian research in the development of new treatments, devices, and ways to prevent type 2 diabetes and search for a cure.

Check your cupboards and closets—and tell your friends and family too!

Gently used clothing • Bedding • Sleeping bags • Belts/ties • Handbags • Yarn • Blankets • Drapes • Jewelry • Hats • Pillows • Shoes and all footwear • Coffee pots/toasters • Pots and pans • Tools • Toys • Stuffed animals • Dishes/mugs • Cell phones • Small electronics • and much more!
