Where do the donations go?

All donations support The Yonge Street Mission’s (YSM) Double Take Store. Double Take is an employment initiative of YSM where gently used, high quality clothing, furniture and housewares can be purchased by our community at affordable prices. All profit goes to YSM programs and initiatives. We also provide employment and training for our community members who have obstacles to regular employment. Double Take also provides an avenue for YSM clients to shop with dignity and choose clothing and other needs through Gift Certificates given out in YSM programs.
