Donate

Your financial gifts and material donations enable us to offer the community support programs that we do. We couldn’t do it without you!

Financial donations to our food bank go further than food donations as we can leverage greater buying power with wholesale accounts and agreements to buy in bulk.

Gifts in Kind:

Under Canada Revenue Agency guidelines, we can offer tax receipts for some donations. For example, we are permitted to offer a tax receipt for new product donations. Individuals are also eligible to receive a tax receipt for some donated used furniture, collectables, household goods, art etc. as well as for bulk food donations to the food bank or healthy choices program. A request must be made at the time of donation so that items can be appraised, and donor information obtained. Unfortunately, we are not permitted to receipt for used clothing under CRA rules.
