 Cornwall Gives-a-Shirt Spring Collection

The City of Cornwall, throughout the whole week, will be hosting a community-wide textile collection called Cornwall Gives A Shirt — Spring edition! Set out bags of gently used clothing, linens, and footwear on your regular collection day during the week the week of April 15-19, 2024 Be sure to mark these bags with a large and clear sign marked with "Cornwall Gives A Shirt."

If you missed your collection date, or have additional items to add to the program you can also bring donations to the City of Cornwall’s Eco Day at Lamoureux Park on April 20th.

For the Spring collection, residents should donate summer and spring items which will prevent our partners like New for You (Agape), Salvation Army and Serendipity Boutique from holding onto fall or winter clothing.

Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to donate those items in the Fall during our 7th Annual Cornwall Gives a Shirt Fall collection.
