Diabetes Association runs ‘donation station’ in Abbotsford

Public can drop off donated items to location on Sumas Way

The Canadian Diabetes Association has a donation drop-off spot located at 1255 Sumas Way in Abbotsford.

The Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) has announced that it has a new attended Clothesline station in Abbotsford.

The station is located at 1255 Sumas Way and is open to accept donations seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a box on site for the after-hours donation of clothing.

The site accepts reusable clothing, shoes, handbags, towels, linens and small household items.

Proceeds raised from Clothesline help the CDA send more than 2,400 children and youths with type 1 diabetes to the CDA’S D-Camps.

These summer and family camps are offered across Canada, including at Camp Kakhamela in Gibsons, B.C., where kids meet and are inspired by each other to manage their diabetes well in a medically supervised setting.

As well, funds raised have helped the CDA fund more than $130 million over the last 40 years in world-leading innovative Canadian research to improve the quality of life of people living with diabetes and to find a cure.
