About New Circles
New Circles Community Services is a not-for-profit, grass-roots agency that builds strong and caring communities by providing basic necessities to those living in poverty. They provide much needed clothing, social programs, and skill building opportunities to individuals living on a low-income, with a focus on residents of Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park, Victoria Village, and Taylor-Massey (including Crescent Town), many of whom are newcomers to Canada.
Their core mission is to ensure that local families struggling with poverty can meet their basic need for adequate clothing. They operate the largest clothing bank in Toronto under the name of GLOW (Gently Loved Outfits to Wear), designed to offer a retail shopping experience that preserves dignity for clients. They also provide emergency relief city-wide for individuals in immediate need of clothing. GLOW has 13,000 visits annually.
Lawrence Park Community Church holds two clothing drives a year for New Circles, one in the winter and one in the spring. They get several car loads from us everytime! If you would like to bring in your gently used clothing to donate, please refer below for the appropriate times. For more informaiton on New Circles, visit their website here.
