OPIRG Brock is accepting donations for The Free Store taking place at the 10th Annual In the Soil Arts Festival! We want anything that is still functioning, but you have no need for anymore! Appliances, school supplies, art, kitchenware, gently worn clothes of all sizes, tools, and potentially any and all other things cluttering up your home!

Ongoing drop-off locations:
- Graduate Student Association Office, MCC 302 | 8:30am-4:30pm Monday to Friday
- Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine & Performing Arts, Lobby in front of the security office | Campus hours 

Specific Drop-Off Days
- Tuesday March 13 | 1-4pm | MCA Hallway, Brock Main Campus
- Thursday March 15 | 5-8pm | Thistle 241, Brock Main Campus

The Free Store will be located on James St., St. Catharines, during In the Soil, taking place Friday April 27-Sunday April 29.


All of the donations are free for the taking! The philosophy of The Free Store is about passing along useful items to people who can use them. Keeping this in mind, we ask that people don't take things they don't want or need. Caps on number of items will be enforced if needed.



Throughout In the Soil, there will be ongoing programming taking place at The Free Store. Everything from tips to fix & upcycle your items to kids programming to talks about the importance of building a community. 

If you would like to facilitate or attend a session, please email

Workshop schedule coming soon!
