Treasures Charity Thrift Store has been selling gently used clothing, linens, house wares, books, jewellery and collectables at reasonable prices in the Richmond Hill area for over 28 years. Our store is a social enterprise providing a supportive workplace for individuals in mental health recovery to engage in meaningful and worthwhile work. This community based program provides opportunities for peer support, skills development and consumer leadership. Volunteer Job Coaches work with individuals living with mental illness who are at a stage in their recovery ready to reintegrate into the community. Through participation in the store’s operation, volunteers can learn new skills and work collaboratively with other volunteers and community members. Volunteers gain a sense of wellbeing while building new relationships and sharing mutual experiences. Treasures is a friendly and inviting atmosphere in which to work, shop and socialize.
