OWNER & PASSIONATE LIVE WIRE
passitonstore.stmarys@gmail.com

Hi I’m Carey,
the lady behind the Pass It On Store social enterprise. We are loving what we are doing here. We are really passionate about preserving our environment and helping local and global charities. Everything we do comes back to that:
People & Our environment.

Let’s unpack that a little shall we?


At Pass It On Store We work to support youth programs, eco-education, arts and culture in our community here in St Marys and around the globe. You can read more on our current projects below.

Pass It On Store is a social enterprise and all the money made through the store – outside of the basic operating costs – is donated to charity.​

​WHAT’S A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE?

In a nutshell a social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in financial, social and environmental well-being.

Speaking of environmental well-being, we are committed to help lessen our impact on the environment. The store is officially considered energy smart and we focus on ways to reduce energy consumption and landfill waste.​

In 2018 we are no longer supplying single use plastic bags. So bring your own totes and help in a positive upbeat way.

Oh, and not only are the goods in the store recycled, but the power in the store is eco friendly – provided by Bull Frog Power an eco friendly power solution.

NO PLASTIC BAGS.

Baseball Equipment

The smile on a child’s face when you give them a baseball glove warms my heart every time. I personally take down baseball equipment to Samana Dominican Republic. Follow our journey on social media or better yet come with us on a trip!

Bikes Change Lives

Pass It On Store collects bikes to help change a life. We help send containers out monthly, drop them off anytime of the year. With the support the generous people who donate their gently used bike and a group of wonderful volunteers who fix them. We send them off to Cuba, Haiti and Latin American countries.

Your donation of a gently used bicycle can help solve the problem of mobility to someone in the developing world. A bike can allow a student to travel to school, a mom to transport her family, a way to carry containers of water back to the village and healthcare worker to be more productive. The efficiency of a bike leads to far more productivity and better living conditions for those in the developing world.
