Environmental Responsibility

Environmental Award

We are always looking for ways to improve our impact on the environment. The Grimsby Benevolent Fund is a great resource for donating or purchasing gently used items. Recycling unwanted items reduces landfill waste as well as the amount of resources needed to produce new items.

Our organization is blessed in the fact that we have been self-sufficient and able to provide financially towards our social service programs by having a retail aspect to our organization. Customers, clients who buy or receive gently used items also benefit from what are usually substantially lower prices, compared to the new price of items.

We are very proud to say that we have the following recycling initiatives in our agency; card board, plastic, metal, clothing/textile. Monies raised from these initiative helps purchase food product in our Food Bank. This would include milk, eggs, produce etc. Together, we are providing the essential building blocks to a healthy and productive life for hundreds of our neighbours while ensuring our responsibility to our environment at the same time.

We are fully committed to engaging new initiatives for those we serve.
