During the temporary closure of our stores and donation centres, we can no longer accept donations from the community. This measure is part of Quebec Government announcement to contain the contagion of COVID-19. Renaissance is asking its generous donors to save their donations for the reopening scheduled for February 8th, 2021.
“Donations left in front of our doors and donation boxes are exposed to the weather or soiled, and are no longer reusable. Unfortunately, we have to throw them away,” says Éric St-Arnaud, Executive Director of Renaissance. “It’s important to keep clothes, toys and household items at home until the reopening” he says.
Donations will be essential for recovery
During the temporary closure, Renaissance’s social mission continues as it is an essential service. Moreover, Renaissance expects an increased demand for its employment assistance and socio-professional integration services due to the announced economic slowdown. It is therefore called upon the patience of donors; donations will be essential to the revival of its economic activity in January. This exemplary concern, already demonstrated in the past, will help Renaissance continue to help thousands of people each year return to the job market.
