Share With Us

We appreciate the wide variety of donations that are shared with us throughout the year, all helping us support our neighbours in need.   Donation drives for things like coats and food, can be a great way to engage and give back.  Participate as a group – work, team, family, church, or other – or share as an individual. Contact our Community Engagement Team today to set up your food drive, coat drive, or other donation program.

Please note that all donation items should be NEW (we will take gently used winter wear in season).

Although a new school year is months away, now is when we gather donations of backpacks and school supplies so that we can be ready to distribute them to families in need by August.  With the support of great donors like you, we were able to offer great quality backpacks to 1400 kids last year and this year we hope to make it 3000!

Donate a new, high quality, backpack today!

What a gift to connect with VBS Apparel!  This local company produces a range of sportswear for teams and tournaments across the country and were looking for a meaningful home for a variety of product that they could no longer use.  

We arranged a pick-up and had a chance to meet with owner, Harvey, to hear a bit about his company and to share a bit about how the donated 1400 pieces of clothing will be used across our programs.  

We look forward to sharing this donation with low-income families and youth, with shelter residents, and with our unhoused neighbours.   

We can do what we do because of amazing donors like you!
