Donating to Charity in Gran Canaria

I recently received an email asking whether there was anywhere to donate unwanted clothing or goods. It’s a common enough situation, especially if you have kids who grow up quick, but it seems a waste to throw their too-small clothes out, so what can you do with them?


Lions Club Gran Canaria

One of the best places to donate to is the Lions Club. They run a 2nd hand stall at Arguineguin and Mogan markets and raise money for families and elderly people in need.

If you have any clothes or goods you don’t want any more, I’m sure they’d be delighted with your donations. Drop them a line here or visit their website here for more details.

TARA Gran Canaria

TARA also appreciates donations and this organization looks after unwanted animals. Perhaps you’re thinking of adopting a new pet, in which case you can have a look at their Facebook page or website. There are lots of animals needing homes at this time of the year.

Asociación Vecinos Las Lomas de Arguineguín

This company runs the local Food Bank and are always in need of donations: non-perishable food, clothing, toys, furniture, toys etc. If you are interested in helping out, they are in Arguineguin next to the Kindergarten, across from the jewelry shop. Go along any Tuesday between 5 and 8pm. You can also search for Las Lomas de Arguineguin on Facebook.


If anyone else knows of any worthy charities in Gran Canaria or anyone else who can make use of unwanted clothes or goods, then feel free to post a comment under this post.
