MONETARY DONATIONS All monetary donations $10 and over receive our thanks, along with a tax receipt. Receipts are issued promptly after the donation is received and mailed to donors. Those who donate monthly receive a receipt in January. Donate online through CanadaHelps.org by pressing the "make a donation" button at the top of the page.
HOUSEHOLD ITEM DONATIONS The suites at our shelters are furnished with donations from the community. We welcome furniture for the kitchen, living room and bedroom and linens that are in good condition. Please call Central Avenue staff to discuss your donation, 306.763.8571 and to arrange a drop off time.
CLOTHING DONATIONS We accept clothing donations throughout the year at our various locations. We accept all clothes that still have some life in them. We are looking for babies, children and adult clothing including: coats, ski pants, hats, mitts, scarves, winter/rain boots, shoes, dresses, pants, shirts, jackets, onesies etc. Clothes should be clean, and zippers should be working.
TOILETRIES DONATIONS Women and children often arrive at our shelters, with little more than the clothes they’re wearing, and with little money or no money. We provide housing and food, but we rely on donations of sanitary pads, diapers, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, lotion, combs and brushes, etc. Likewise, people who live in emergency and transitional housing often don’t have anything left to cover hygiene products after paying for rent and food.
Your donations enable them to access items that help them feel good about themselves.
For more information, contact Central Avenue staff at 306.763.8571 Please note that the YWCA Prince Albert does not have the capacity to pick donations up.
HOMEWARD BOUND The Homeward Bound Program is in need of quilts, heavy blankets, duvets, pillows or towels that are clean and in good shape. Please contact Dave or Rob at 306.922.6155 if you have any you can donate, pick up may be possible.
