Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities
Originally founded as West Hill Community Services in 1977, Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC) is one of the most established and comprehensive community health organizations in the province.
The organization owes its beginnings to 13 community agencies, a core group of community leaders and countless volunteers who identified emerging health and social needs within Scarborough.
Our furniture and clothing banks provide gently used furniture, household items and clothing to families and individuals. The furniture bank is often used by community members who are being housed for the first time or leaving a shelter. The clothing bank has an inventory of clothing in all fashions and sizes.
SCHC accepts and distributes donated goods to thousands of clients across our 38 programs. Donated goods, also known as in-kind gifts, are items such as gently used clothing, furniture, children’s toys, non-perishable food, or any other non-monetary items. If you would like to make an in-kind donation please call us at 416.847.4170.
