Accepted items or not

For 25 years, the Fondation québécoise de la déficience intellectuelle (FQDI) has been collecting used clothes and used domestic items. The Foundation resell those articles and, with the profits aid financially organizations throughout the Province of Quebec who support people living with intellectual disability.

The clothing and domestic articles will have a second life rather than fill up municipal dumps. The FQDI is putting a lot of emphasis on recycling and environmental matters. We invite you to be socially responsible when you discard used clothing and used domestic articles.

The Foundation wants to inform you that it does not accept furniture anymore whatever the size of it. On the other hand, Le Support has a great need for used domestic articles. Those articles are a hot commodity these days. Toasters, lamps, kettles, plates, utensils, glasses, mugs, cauldrons, everything related to kitchen articles. Vinyls LPs, audio and video cassettes, CDs, DVDs, books, and many other articles like that would be very welcomed.
