Donate items

To view our Christmas Wish List, click here.

To provide our youth with food, shelter, medical care, as well as the life skills, education and employment programming that kids need to move forward, we rely on cash donations. We are also grateful to donors who choose to donate items that our youth can use.

Please email to discuss your items and arrange a time with our staff for you to drop them off. Unfortunately, pick up is not available.

We have limited staff resources and storage, so we do not have the resources to accept and process used furniture or sort clothing, with the exception of gently used winter coats. Due to City of Toronto food safety regulations, we also cannot accept homemade food or packaged food that is expired, dented or opened.


Please contact us to ensure that we are currently in need of the items you are planning to donate. While we frequently need the items below, we may have all that we need at any given time.We have no additional storage for items we cannot use quickly.

  • Gift cards to stores and restaurants: (e.g. Subway, Shoppers, Walmart etc.)
  • Non-perishable food for our Food Bank
  • TTC tokens
  • Men's boxers and women's underwear
  • New and gently used winter coats (October to February only)
  • Unopened hygiene products (especially for men) preferably in travel sizes
