5 dollar gift cards.jpg

Gift Cards (5 dollar denominations)

 Our most needed item.

A 5-dollar gift card provides high value for the donation. Vulnerable folks can get a hot meal, warm up, use the washroom and sit somewhere comfortably. This is a gift of dignity, warmth and food. 

We always have a need for gift cards to Mcdonalds and Tim Hortons in 5$ denominations. 

Pink and yellow striped socks


Always needed item.

We distribute 5000 pairs of socks per year. In colder months we need warm, thermal socks.


In warmer months we are in need of ankle socks and long socks.
