Accepted or not

First of all, Le Support doesn’t accept furniture or household appliances. Apart from these, we take almost anything you’d find in a home: curtains, blinds, dishware, pots and pans, knick-knacks, towels, books, magazines, records, CDs, DVDs, audio and video cassettes, small sound systems, small electrical appliances and, of course, clothing.

What is refused

Le Support has been collecting used clothing and other used items for over 30 years. We have to sell what we collect. Unfortunately, the market for furniture and household appliances is almost nonexistent.

If you have furniture and household appliances that you’d like to get rid of, we suggest that you contact the Information and Referral Centre of Greater Montreal. They will be able to inform you about the places that accept these items as donations.

  • No beds or mattresses
  • No sofas or armchairs
  • No ovens (but we do accept microwave ovens)
  • No refrigerators or dishwashers
  • No washing machines or dryers

What is accepted

We accept almost anything that’s found in a home. But remember one important condition: your items must be in good shape. Why? Because we have to sell everything we collect. This is how we raise money to help the intellectually disabled.
