Help Us Raise $20,000 to Keep Our Clients Safe, Warm and Dry

Working Gear’s winter fundraiser is back and it’s our biggest yet—we desperately need your help to raise $20,000.  

Give today and immediately double your impact—WorkSafeBC has generously offered to match every dollar raised up to $10,000! For every dollar you donate, we will get $2. 

As we’ve already seen this year, the constant rain and bitter cold can be relentless, especially when you’re not equipped with the right gear. Vital items like quality steel-toe boots, personal protective equipment and weatherproof clothing easily add up to more than $500. Your donation will go directly to buying these essentials needed to keep our clients safe, warm, and dry as they begin their career in the trades.

Our clients are working hard to improve their lives. Help give them the boost (and the boots) they need.

Working Gear provides interview and industry appropriate clothing and gear to low-income or unemployed individuals in search of employment. Many have been unemployed for long periods and cannot afford the clothing needed to find a job.

We provide individuals with free good quality used or new clothing and gear, from construction clothing and steel-toed boots to business casual attire and suits. We also offer a barber service. Clients are referred to our shop by appointment through community agencies assisting the unemployed.

Working Gear is a registered charitable non-profit society. We are primarily run by volunteers and have been operating in Vancouver, B.C., since 2007. We rely on the generous support of individuals and the business community for both clothing and funding. All financial donations go directly to supporting our work and we rely on volunteers to provide our services. Together we can give unemployment the boot!
