WHERE AND WHAT TO DONATE IN YYC

For those who want to donate, here’s a short, updated list of current needs.

Inn from the Cold Society

At the moment, their greatest need is not for donations of items (clothing, toys, toiletries, etc.), but for cash donations, as we will need to replenish their stock of food within the next few days and weeks. They are currently covering the costs associated with guests’ accommodations until they are able to provide them with shelter again. Donations of any denomination are greatly appreciated and can be quickly and easily made online.

    we have a loveseat that we are not using (there is a very small tear in it), but I am sure somebody could use and would like to donate it. I can’t put it into my car, but if you wish to pick it up, we would like to contribute somehow.
