Value Village is on a mission to create a better world through reuse by inspiring local communities to donate reusable items to local nonprofits instead of throwing them in the trash. Through its commitment to sustainability, Value Village has become one of the largest recyclers of used goods in the world, keeping more than 700 million pounds of reusable items from landfills each year. We are partnered with Value Village’s West Island store, which means Value Village pays to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of West Island when goods are donated at the store’s on-site Community Donation Centre, whether the items make it to the sales floor or not. When members of the West Island community donate, they are not only giving their goods a second life, they are turning those goods into a sustainable source of funding to support our mission.
