Value of Re-donations:

In order to show the monetary value of the re-donations in addition to the funds we have been tracking the number of bags, boxes given to the various organizations.

  • 40 bags of donated items to Herchmer School for their community clothing drive. Value of donation would be 40 X $40.00 = $ 1600.00
  • 50-65 bags per week of clothing on average towards the re-donations overseas. This means approximately 2,600-3,380 bags a year donated to this project. At the value of $ 40.00 per bag this would equate t0 $104,000 - $135,200 per year.
  • Approximately $ 500.00 worth of merchandise (clothing, bedding, hard goods) given to people that come in off the street and need a hand.
  • Donations from Cobbs Bakery, Co-op Bakery, and Stone’s Throw Coffee Collective. Pick up from Cobbs is 3 times a week for 50 weeks a year, which equates to 150 pickups a year. The average pickup amount is approx. $ 225.00-$300.00 worth of bread. Weekly this is $ 675.00-$900.00, and yearly is amount to $33,750 - $45,000. Stone’s Throw donations are picked weekly and the average to about a $100.00 a week. Co-op donations are picked up weekly and average $225.00-$500.00.

Log House Special Activities

  • Bible Handout Project – We continue to provide the small pocket English New Testaments, and Bibles in other languages. Bibles that come into the store for donations get put out for people to take.
  • Christmas Shopping Night – A special shopping night in December is set aside for the young people between the ages of 6-13. The store opens in the evening just for them and they come and shop for their families, caregivers, etc. The shoppers are helped by the “elves” that work/volunteer at the store. Christmas treats are provided for all. A special visit from Mrs. Claus highlights the evening and Santa Bags are given to all of the children filled with small toys and treats.
  • Community Health Classes/Credits: The Log House is pleased to be part of this High School credit program. Students that require Service Hours for their Christian Ethics or Health classes can volunteer in the store to complete the required credit.
  • Work Placements: The store is available for any Adult Training work placements with the Regina Schools.
  • Cosmopolitan Learning Centre: We are working with this centre one afternoon a week to help provide adults with disabilities a chance to work in a public setting. They come with a job coach and they help do small tasks around the store.
