A new donation centre on the South Shore

February 11 2017

Renaissance is proud to announce the opening of its 40th donation centre which is located at 1148 chemin Chambly, in Longueuil (at the corner of Leblanc Street).
This third Donation Centre located in Longueuil offers the citizens an ecological way to dispose of their goods and reduces the environmental footprint of their communities. Every person who wishes to do his part for the environment as well as the community is invited to drop off their donations of clothing and used household items.


Giving used articles to Renaissance is a gesture of generosity towards others as well as towards the planet. These items in good condition are diverted from landfill sites. Since the beginning of Renaissance, the resale of these goods has fueled the economic engine that has enabled Renaissance to help the thousands of people it has integrated into the workforce. 

All of the goods given to Renaissance support the job training program which positively transforms the lives of hundreds of people excluded from the workforce each year. Thus, all the items donated by the community are sorted, ticketed and put for sale throughout the network of the ten Fripe-Prix stores, its six Bookstores, a Specialized Boutique and a Liquidation Centre. All of the revenue is reinvested in Renaissance’s social mission which actually changes people’s lives by giving hope and dignity to people seeking a second chance.
