DONATIONS: Without your donations, we could not help so many people. Due to limited space and programming needs, we’ve had to shorten our list of donations. Please refer to our FAQ’s here for a complete list of items needed. For more info call: (604) 376-7238
DROP-OFFS: We currently accept donations at Urban Thrift and Aunt Leah’s Place. Because of their locations, we can only accept clothing and small accessories that you can carry in yourself, as there is limited access. Call 604-376-7238 for more information.
