Donate your Shoppers Optimum Points

Did you know you can donate your Shoppers Optimum Points to YSB? When you donate your points, you make it possible for ys to purchase much-needed items for our Young Men's and Young Women's Emergency Shelters - items like food, baby supplies, and basic necessities. It's easy to donate - simply log-in to your Shoppers Optimum account here, and select Youth Services Bureau Ottawa in the "donate" page!

Donate a Car

Donate a Car Canada accepts Vehicle Donations for Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa.  Free towing is provided in most areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle to Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction (depending on its condition, age and location). Donate a Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for YSB to benefit. After your vehicle donation is complete, we'll send you a tax receipt, and you'll know that your old vehicle will be helping young people at-risk in our community!
