Markham only partners with licensed, registered charities. These include:
- The Salvation Army
- Diabetes Canada
- Cornerstone to Recovery
- Ontario Federation of Cerebral Palsy
- B'nai Brith Canada
These charities collect from and maintain all Markham textile donation bins. They sort donated textiles and figure out whether they can be re-worn, reused, or recycled. The Salvation Army Thrift Store and Value Village sell the gently used items. Textiles that can't be re-worn are turned into industrial rags, furniture padding, insulations, car seats, recycle fabrics, and more.
