Are you looking to share the Christmas spirit with your family and friends? Here are a few ways you can help our community this holiday season and make a difference in the lives of Calgarians!
Volunteer Your Time
We welcome individuals and groups to help at our donation centre! It is important that all of our donations are sorted and prepared to be put into our stores. This is such a great way for corporate groups, family members or a few friends to dedicate a few hours to giving back.
During this busy winter season, we are in need of volunteers to help keep up with the many wonderful donations that come through our doors. Volunteers fulfill an important role at WINS through the gift of time, energy and talent! For more information and to fill out an application click here!
Shop Our Stores
Did you know that we are local to Calgary and we have five thrift stores in the city? The revenues from our thrift stores help fund 83% of the programs and services we provide to support more than 5,000 women and their families in Calgary each year.
Our stores are budget-friendly, always have great finds for your wardrobe and home, and there’s something for the whole family. Consider upcycling this Christmas for your little ones by shopping our wide range of toys and gently used children’s clothing in our stores!
Perhaps you’re hosting a Christmas dinner or holiday party and you’re looking for a few items to give your table that holiday glow? Shop our home goods sections to find that perfect touch!
Not sure what to get the thrift lover in your life? Gift cards are a great way to support our organization, and buying thrift is good for the environment, too!
Donate Gently Used Items
It’s hibernation season – the perfect time to sort and re-arrange your home or closet. Why not plan a family purge day? With many cold months still ahead, we are in need of winter clothing donations. When you donate your gently used household goods or clothing items to WINS, you are supporting our community programs and resource centres, helping families in need to turn their house into a home and supporting the upcycle movement.

Make WINS Part of your Holiday Giving

Your donations go directly towards helping us advance our mission and supporting families in need in Calgary.
