Earth Day Clothing Donation Drive
Get involved this Earth Day with Lifetime Networks and Max Furniture’s Clothing Donation drive!
The 2023 Earth Day Clothing Drive event was a huge success!
We redirected 2,000 lbs of textiles and household items
from our landfill!
Lifetime Networks invites you to celebrate Earth Day 2024 by removing thousands of kilos of used clothing and shoes, from the environment. Our partner for this Clothing Drive is Rahim Khudabux, of Max Furniture and long-time sponsor and supporter of Lifetime’s work in the community.
We will accept clothing, textiles, and shoes for our Clothes Drop fundraising program and turn them into money to support more participants at Lifetime Networks.
Help us MAX OUT THE MAX TRUCK! We want to reach our goal of stuffing the furniture truck with clothes.
Where: Max Furniture, 3460 Quadra St, Victoria
When: Saturday, April 20th, 2024
If you would like to make a donation now, please visit our Clothing Drop web page to find a bin near you!

Move Around the World!
Let’s Move Around the World in 2023!
Lifetime Networks is starting a new challenge on April 1st to help us all stay active with a common goal. Our goal is to move ourselves around the world on or before the Autumn Equinox (September 22, 2023). Can we all pool together to make it around the equatorial circumference of Earth? According to National Geographic, that is 40,075 km!
Here’s how it works:
- Register yourself to participate by contacting us at 250-477-4112 or emily@LNV.ca .
- You can pay your registration fee of $15.00 by cash, cheque or e-transfer. E-transfers can be sent to this email address (lifetimenetworks@LNV.ca) and must have your name and the word “MOVE” in the message.
- On April 1st, start keeping track of how far you self-propel. In kilometres, how far did you walk, run, swim, wheel, bike, row, etc. All movement must be made by using your own energy (so, no, movement by way of vehicle does not count – LOL!).
- You will receive regular emails with world facts and updates about how far we’ve traveled. These also serve as a reminder to send in your KM count!
At the end, we will host a gathering with some tasty treats to celebrate with everyone who participated. There will be some random prize draws for gift cards.
Please contact emily@LNV.ca if you have any questions.
