"Anything Goes" Store
The YWCA Regina's second hand store is conveniently located on the main floor of our downtown facility. Made possible by ongoing donations of goods from the community and the tireless work of one dedicated volunteer, "Anything Goes" is an outlet for low-cost toys, clothing, books and household goods.
All donations of goods are first made available to clients from Isabel Johnson Shelter, My Aunt's Place, and Kikinaw Residence—their needs are given priority. Items that are not needed by clients will at times will be used in a program area, or are displayed in our store, where they are still available to our clients at no cost, or sold to the public at garage sale prices. Profits from sales, currently more than $30,000 annually, support our YWCA programs for women and children.
At times, more donations come in than we can use in any of the ways listed above. We then donate surplus goods to other charities.
