Run a collection drive on your own – or host a drive with family, friends, or colleagues
Community Collection Drive Program (CCD)
Individuals, teams, and businesses are invited to collect necessary, everyday items for women and children who have fled intimate partner violence and human trafficking. We have built the program in a way that requires energy and commitment on everyone's part, because the potential for sparking passion and connection is well worth the effort you will put into it. Our goal is to inspire people to feel connected and invested in this volunteer experience. Plus, teens can earn high school volunteer hours by participating.
Once you've collected your items, we book a visit to our warehouseto deliver, sort, and shelve the products – everyone’s favourite part! You are also welcome to book a visit in advance of your collection drive, so we can help inspire the hearts and minds of you and your colleagues/friends.
