Where To Donate Your Old Clutter In Strathmore

We love keeping things in the local community but some people in Strathmore find it harder to locate a good place to donate because they aren't living in a large city like Calgary! If you know of a not-for-profit organization within the Strathmore or the closely-surrounding area, please email Just Declutter with your referral and what donations they are looking for so we can update our list!  Let's all come together and share our spots!
