Ways to Donate

Monetary Donations

Transformational change – that is what your gift to Argus achieves!


Legacy Gifts

Leaving a gift in your will helps a young person find a place to call home and provides them with opportunities to thrive. It is a gift that truly keeps on giving.

Gifts in Memory or In Honour

Do you have everything you need? Celebrate a birthday, Christmas or anniversary by giving the gift to young people in need.

Gifts in memory of a loved one will help change lives and make our world, a better place!

Save the Environment! - Create Youth Employment - Donate to Uptown Thrift

Uptown Thrift is always in need of good quality clothing, houseware items, décor items and furniture! We pick up good quality furniture from your front porch or garage!

We would love to see you shop at Uptown Thrift. We are dedicated to bringing the community quality items at bargain prices and offering friendly customer service in an upbeat, funky thrift store environment!

100% of sale proceeds are used to create youth employment!
