OK folks! Time to start gathering every bit of fabric you no longer need and donate it to the Textile Recycling Fundraiser for the Procyon Wildlife Centre!!!
We also collect purses, luggage and all footwear, no matter what they are made of. The more we collect, the more money that comes back to Procyon so we can care for orphaned and injured wildlife. All items can be dropped off at the Procyon Wildlife Centre. If you do not live near Procyon, but are in the GTA area, please contact
We are also collecting used eye glasses and stuffed toys. Everything, no matter what condition, is appreciated. Items in good condition go to the needy, and items in bad condition are shredded to make stuffing for cushions, pet toys etc. So go through your closets and homes, and donate what you no longer need. Collection is taking place throughout the month of September.
Until October 1st, Procyon Wildlife will be collecting any and all textiles; everything from good clothing to ragged and stained clothing (as long as it’s clean), towels, sheets, comforters, rags, fabric odds and ends, curtains, stuffed animals, footwear, luggage, handbags (no matter what condition) and sports equipment.
Any items in good condition will go towards charities, and items no longer viable will be shredded and recycled into stuffing for things like cushions and pet toys, etc…
We are giving advance notice now, so you can start thinking about what you don’t need anymore. It’s good to de-clutter once in awhile, and this is for a great cause!
The more stuff collected, the more money Procyon Wildlife will receive, so we are hoping to collect LOTS of stuff.
Collection will begin in September, and run until October 1st. Please place clean, dry and odourless items in a plastic bag and bring to: Procyon Wildlife, 6441 7th line, Beeton, L0G 1A0 between September 1st and October 1st, 2018.
We’ll get paid by the pound, so the more we collect the better!
