Cash4Clothes Clothing Drive

Cash 4 Clothes is a great way to raise money for your organization or team, as well as to support children and adults with developmental disabilities. DDA supports your clothing drive every step of the way. Here’s how it works:

Collect between 75 to 150 full bags at one time, and receive $2.00 per bag

Collect over 151 full bags at one time, and receive $3.00 per bag

It’s that simple! Once your clothing drive is over, we will come and pick up all the bags.

We also accept housewares as part of our Cash 4 Clothes program. These items must be bagged separately and may include dishes, pots and pans, books and glassware. “Hard items” and “soft items” must be separated into two different bag colours. For a complete list of acceptable items, please visit our acceptable items list.

Register your group today and receive your Cash 4 Clothes starter kit, which includes donation bags and a Cash 4 Clothes poster to display at your school, team room or organization.


Please contact us at 604.233.5415 or at to register your group.
