At Regeneration Outreach Community, it's our mission to break the cycle of poverty in Brampton. We do this by providing accessible and thoughtful programs that instill dignity, empowerment, and a renewed sense of hope. Our Thrift Store is designed to directly support our essential care programs that are provided for the homeless and vulnerable living in Peel region. The proceeds of each purchase made are used to fund essential items, and we strive to keep our prices low and affordable so that everyone in our community can afford to shop with us. Our Thrift Store involves many volunteers who fill a variety of 'roles' as a Thrift Store Associate, all of which are essential in operating the store and giving our customers a unique and one-of-a-kind shopping experience.
