Thank you for thinking of St. Vincent Place! There are many ways to donate to us:
You can make a financial donation in person via cheque or cash, by mailing a cheque, or online through CanadaHelps. If you require assistance making a donation with your credit card, you can call 705-253-2770 ext. 4, and we can help.
You can also donate online using our new Online Gift Catalogue. Using this site allows you to see exactly where and how your donation will be used. Donations through the OGC are managed via PayPal.
NEW! We can now accept donations via e-transfer as well. If you’d like your donation to be put toward our food services (food bank & soup kitchen), send your e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like it to be put toward our shelter or put in our general account and directed to wherever it is most needed, send your e-transfer to email@example.com.
No password is needed, but if you would like a charitable receipt, you must provide your name and home address in the message section of your transfer, or as a separate email. (Your home address is required for your receipt, even if you would like us to email you your receipt.)
If you’d like to make a practical donation, we are always happy to accept items for our food bank. The following goods are always particularly in demand. If you’d like a paper or magnet copy of the below infographic, just get in touch today to request yours.
If you’d like to donate items specifically for the men in the shelter, we are always happy to accept clothing, including socks and underwear. Some other great items to donate for the shelter include:
- toiletries, especially:
- razors & shaving cream
- toothbrushes & toothpaste
- shampoo & conditioner
- winter hats & mitts
- small-denomination gift cards for restaurants, such as Subway, Tim Hortons, or McDonalds (when our shelter clients help out around the building, we like to thank them with gift cards so they can get themselves a coffee or treat themselves to a take-out meal)
You can also donate goods to our thrift store. All items sold in our thrift store are donated, and those sales make up 15% of our operating budget. Learn more about the thrift store here.
