Siloam Mission is seeking donations of mittens and gloves to keep our community members warm. We are running low and the cold weather is here to stay for a little while longer. 
We accept used (clean) and new items!
Tax receipts can be issued for NEW items so long as the receipt and donor info are provided at time of donation.
Feel free to contact with any questions regarding donations.

MP Leah Gazan, MLA Lisa Naylor, and Staff collected donations for community members impacted by the fires that happened in Winnipeg Centre over the Christmas season. They collected:
Adult size clothing (including plus sizes)
Children's clothes from 3-6 months to youth XL
Baby supplies (bottles, diapers, pull ups, formula, diaper cream, stroller)
Household supplies (including towels, sheets, blankets, small appliances, utensils, dishes)
Suitcases and duffel bags

Fires do unfortunately happen frequently in Winnipeg. If you have such items which have been outgrown or are being replaced in your home, why not box them? 
That way you'll be ready for the next time there's a request, so that you'll be able to help your fellow Winnipeggers. Thank you!
