With the colder winter months fast approaching, we are encouraging Calgarians to look through their closets for gently used clothing items they no longer need. For many women and their families, buying these basic necessities that we often take for granted is a huge financial challenge.
We are looking for winter items such as coats, parkas, mitts, scarves, socks and boots that can help women and their families be comfortably set up with the essential this coming winter.
There are multiple ways you are able to contribute in helping foster in the WINS community. A great way is to simply shop at WINS, not only for yourself but also your kids. Kids grow out of clothing quickly and WINS has great quality and affordable options for you and your entire family. All revenues from our thrift stores help fund the delivery of our programs and services to help Calgary women emerge from poverty to self-sufficiency.
These donations can make a huge impact in someone’s life. A client of WINS explains: “The money I would be spending on clothes will help me buy food for my kids.”
You can donate or shop at one of five WINS stores throughout Calgary. Last year, our thrift store revenue funded 83% of our programs, which supported 5,000 Calgary women and their families.
Your donations and support mean the world to us!
