DSA Thriftshop Good Donation Drive

Have you been blessed with so much stuff (ahem*clutter*) that you can't use them all? Or want to shop for a meaningful present that gives in more than one way?

Here's where you can go.

The Down Syndrome Association (DSA) of Singapore has a social enterprise, SHOP@DSA21, which is essentially a thriftshop selling donated and/or second-hand goods. Through this, young people with Down Syndrome learn working skills and gain social interaction.

They are gearing up for the Christmas sale, so they would greatly appreciate donations of items you have (in working condition).

You can drop off stuff at two venues:

Down Syndrome Association (Singapore) office
Block 17A Telok Blangah Crescent, #01-270
Singapore 091017
Drop-off hours - Mondays to Fridays: 8.30am - 6pm
The Shop is open two days - Monday AND Friday from 11.00am to 3.00pm

DSA at Junction 8
9 Bishan Place #06-04
Junction 8 Office Tower (not the shopping centre, but just next to it)
Singapore 579837
Drop-off hours - Mondays to Fridays: 8.30am - 6pm, Saturdays 9.30am - 6pm

The DSA would like to thank you for your supporting efforts to assist people with Down Syndrome to become more independent and contributing members to society.

I'm headed down there myself to drop off some stuff next week, and take a look at the shop. Have you seen Clean House on Style Network (channel 81 on Starhub Cable Vision)? I love Niecy Nash and the team. They force/help home owners get rid of clutter via a yard sale and donate unsold items to a charity thrift store too!


  1. Hi Camemberu,

    Saw your post on the DSA Thrift Shop Donation Drive. Thought this is an opportunity to do our bit for charity.

    Tried searching the DSA website but could not find this poster there. Was thinking of sharing this info at a forum which i frequent. Is it oki to share the link to this post on your blog?

  2. Hi Nizze! I'm very glad you're helping to spread the word! Yes, by all means link to the post here. You can also download the original size flier here to email anyone who might be interested.
