2. Donate funds or personal care items to Homeless Connect
Homeless Connect Edmonton is held twice a year at the Shaw Conference Centre. The event connects homeless and at-risk individuals with essential services such as dentistry, hair cutting, foot care and employment training.
Each guest receives a personal care kit containing personal care items such as toiletries, band-aids and socks. To ensure a successful event, we collect these items with the goal of creating 2000 care kits per event.
Alternatively, you can coordinate a donation drive in your community. Donation drives are a great way to bring community members together, and collect large amounts of items at one time.

3. Donate gently used furniture to Find
Find is an initiative of Homeward Trust Edmonton. It is a social enterprise that offers quality, low-cost, previously used furniture for sale to the public. Furniture is also provided free of charge to participants in Edmonton’s housing first support program. Proceeds from retail sales support programs for people transitioning out of homelessness and into permanent housing, helping them build better futures.
Find accepts donations of gently used, quality home furnishings. The greatest need is for good condition sofas, couches, and chairs, along with dressers and tables (coffee/end/kitchen).
Find cannot accept damaged goods, such as those that are broken, stained, or torn. They also do not accept beds and mattresses. Not only will they not be used, they will slow down the processing and delivery of good condition donations.
Donations can be dropped off at Find’s retail location, 5120 – 122 Street in Edmonton, between 9 AM and 5 PM, Monday – Saturday.
