Winter Clothing Share
Part of Solidarité Milton-Parc is that we are learning as we go, talking with people in the homeless community, and seeing what works best for them and us in terms of what and how we can share. The winter is brutal for people here, we’re told that this year, shelters have been running out of space, so there are more people sleeping outside in very very cold weather. Blankets, good snow pants and waterproof warm boots are always in huge need, if you have these to share, you may do so directly, or by contacting [email protected] Living on the street in this cold climate offers dangers and challenges that most of us don’t even consider or could ever imagine.
There is a HUGE need right now for thermal socks, gloves, scarves, toques and blankets. You can buy most of those items at Dollarama for $1.50 – $3.00 an item and they will be very well appreciated. We encourage you to buy those items new, and either drop them off with us, or take them directly to a member(s) of the homeless community closest to you. You can also make a trust-based cash donation to us and we will purchase the most current identified needs.
If you have any items on the list below that are clean and in good condition, please contact Su or France, both at Coop La Petite Cité to drop off your clothing donations.
We’ll accept any amount of the following items clean and in good condition:
~ scarves or face cover
~ sleeping bags
~ long underwear
~ winter coats
~ snow pants
Milton-Parc is located on Haudenosaunee traditional territory.
