Donation Reminder – PLEASE DONATE DON’T DUMP!
We are so grateful to receive hundreds of bags of donations each week at ‘For The Interval’ Store! Unfortunately, 30% of the donations we receive are unusable (stained, torn, missing pieces, dirty, broken, etc.). Please double check your donations to ensure they are ready to be used by someone else. If they are not, we kindly ask you to redirect that item to a recycling facility or garbage dump. We know (and are so grateful) that items are donated to us with the very best of intentions but receiving unusable items hurts us more than it helps us as these items stretch our resources.
You will notice that we now have coloured tables in our donation receiving area. We are asking donors to sort items into the following categories and place them onto the correct colour coded table when dropping off:
- Clothing (pink)
- Housewares (blue)
- Electronics (orange)
- Toys (green)
- Footwear (purple)
This will make a big difference for our staff and volunteers and allow us to get items to clients, community members, and onto the floor faster. Please drop your gently-used items off between our designated donation hours, 10am-4pm, 7 days a week! Thank you for your understanding, help, and continued support!

We are beaming with gratitude reflecting upon the success of our second annual virtual 5K! 295 participants x 5 km each = 1475 km! That is almost the equivalent of walking from Lloydminster to Victoria, BC!
THANK YOU to everyone who participated, donated, and/or purchased apparel! We are grateful for your support, generosity, and helping us shine a light on family violence! We are able to continue working towards our mission because of caring people like you!
A sincere thank-you to our generous sponsors who made this event possible: Bioclean Disaster Services, Synergy Credit Union, Grindin Gears, Smileworks Dental Group, The New Lloydminster Nissan, and Can-Do Auto & Lube!
