How You Can Help

Families in Need

*WINS requests your immediate support by donating warm winter jackets for Women and their families in need; in exchange for your generosity, we will provide you with 20% off your next purchase.*

Through the generous donations from Calgarians and area, WINS is able to help women and their families address immediate needs. This empowers them to develop skills and confidence to become self-sufficent.

WINS gratefully accepts a variety of items to be sold in our Stores. Your donations and patronage of WINS Thrift Stores can help transform the lives of women and their families helps to fund our community programs.
