As a functioning 24/hour a day, 7 days a week Emergency Homeless Shelter we have a great need for toiletries and other personal items. Quite often, women come through our door with nothing but the clothes on their back. Below is a list of items that we can always make good use of in our shelters. If you have items to donate you may drop them off any time at either our St. Catharines Emergency Shelter (183 King Street) or our Niagara Falls Emergency Shelter (6135 Culp Street).
If you have gently used furniture or decor to donate please contact us at 905-988-3528 to see if it’s something we can use. If it’s not, we can refer you to one of our community partners who can better utilize your donation.
We are always on the lookout for items that can be used at fundraisers. If you have items such as wine, event tickets, air miles, travel vouchers, high end electronics etc.
**Please note that all items must be NEW.
