There are several ways that you can contribute. Financial donations and goods are both desperately needed, with warm clothing, food and household necessities being the most urgent requirements.
You can donate money to help with the resettlement of refugees in Wilmot by contacting individual sponsorship groups. General donations toward refugee support can be given to Mennonite Central Committee or Canadian Lutheran World Relief.
Financial and food donations will be accepted at food banks at any time. There is a special need for Halal foods, cooking oils, dry milk, tomato sauce, canned beans/fish/vegetables and dry goods (beans, rice, chickpeas, etc.) To assist locally sponsored refugees with food upon their arrival, contact a local sponsorship group.
New- or gently-used winter coats, boots, warm clothes, baby supplies, etc. donated via a local sponsorship group.
Contact a local sponsorship group if you have donations of furniture, appliances and other household goods.
