Gifts in Kind

Gillian’s Place provides essential items such as clothing, underwear and toiletries for the women and children we serve, who often need to flee quickly and do not have time to prepare and pack. Although we accept new items, financial contributions are preferred as it allows us to purchase items in bulk and buy exactly what is needed by the women and children we help. The needs at the shelter change, so it is best to contact us to ensure that we are able to accept your donation.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get regular updates of immediate needs.

We have many options for giving throughout the year. Click here for our wish list of items needed on a regular basis at the shelter.

Please note that we do not accept donations of furniture. Due to health and safety policies, we cannot accept used items or leftover food that was not prepared specifically for Gillian’s Place.  We are not able to accept second-hand items, but we have developed partnerships with local organizations who are able to accept used items.
