"The furniture items I got today are very similar to the ones I had back home. Because of the war in my country, I had to leave all our belongings and flee. Canada feels like HOME now." - Martha

WINS Donation Centre
Established in 2020, our Donation Centre is the heart of WINS' mission to connect women and their families with resources to thrive. Here, we house a vast array of donations generously contributed by individuals like yourself. Our Donation Centre serves as a hub of hope, where we sort, organize, and distribute these items to those in need. It's also the space where our Warehouse Ready Program comes to life.
At our Donation Center, volunteers play a crucial role in helping us fulfill our mission. They generously offer their time and skills, working alongside our dedicated staff to sort, categorize, and prepare items for distribution. Together, we create a vibrant community that embodies the spirit of compassion and giving. Join us at our Donation Centre, where your contributions and volunteer efforts make a tangible difference in the lives of those we serve.
