Wish List


Gift Certificates

Donating a gift card allows a mother the flexibility to make necessary purchases for herself and her children. Our clients often need to buy clothing for school and work, school supplies, fresh food, tableware or small appliances when moving into their new home.  Gift cards help to ensure that they can get exactly what they need, and restores some of the dignity and freedom of choice that was stolen from them.  

The following are examples of gift certificates that are most useful: Food Basics, Frescho, No Frills,  gas cards, bus tickets, Wal-Mart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Pen Centre, Fairview Mall, Giant Tiger, and Canadian Tire.

Items needed on a regular basis at the shelter:

  • Non-perishable food items such as school- safe snacks, canned vegetables, canned tuna, spaghetti sauce, soup, granola bars and drink boxes.
  • Pyjamas
  • personal care items
  • towels (all sizes and colours except white)
  • cell phones (new or used, with charger)

We will update our Facebook page with specific donation requests as needed. You can find our page here 

Gillian's Place is extremely appreciative of all the donations we receive. If you require any other information, please don't hesitate to contact us. We would ask that you call ahead to schedule a visit to drop off your donation.
