On a daily basis the Grimsby Benevolent Fund team is reminded of the generosity of our community and surrounding areas.  The support of our community has been outstanding and we are finding more of our customers are coming from out of town. As a result, the incoming donations of clothing and household items have more than doubled.

We want to thank everyone who has supported the GBF retail store whether it is with donations of gently used items or purchases.  The work of the Grimsby Benevolent Fund is made possible by your generous support.  Every donation and or purchase is important, and allows us to carry out our mission which is to help individuals and families in maintaining self-sufficiency by providing assistance with basic needs.

The GBF retail store is a great place to shop.  Update your wardrobe or household with incredible one of kind finds.  Whatever your style, you can find designer and brand name items at great prices.  Clothing, books, furniture, linens, toys, housewares and antiques arrive daily.  Please visit our store, browse for a bargain and find comfort in knowing that your purchase is helping us carry out our mission.

We could not do what we do without our donors and our community partners.  We look forward to working with you in the future.  We, and those we serve, deeply appreciate your generosity and continued support.

”Furniture”

The community of Grimsby and surrounding areas continue to show strong support of the Grimsby Benevolent Fund with their amazing donations, as well as our outstanding retail sales. The Furniture department continued to supply amazing used furniture and household items for sale on our retail floor.

”Media

We continue to strive to provide professional literature and signage to share the great work being done at the Grimsby Benevolent Fund on an on-going basis.  Incorporated with our logo is our slogan, “Grimsby’s Landmark of Caring”, which was developed by one of our Food Bank volunteers.

Several newspaper and magazine ads are placed each year, not only for our different programs and fundraisers, but also to keep GBF in the forefront within our community at every opportunity. The Grimsby Chamber of Commerce, Grimsby Peach King Centre, Grimsby Downtown Improvement Area, Cogeco Cable, and our local newspapers all provide outlets for GBF to advertise on a regular basis and share our stories of the differences being made by the Grimsby Benevolent Fund.
