As the temperature continues to drop, Vancouver’s cold, damp winters will take a huge toll on the city’s homeless. The cold weather not only means needing to keep warm, but also to stay dry. Each winter, the Kettle’s Homeless Outreach Program provides warm clothing, undergarments, and outdoor living supplies to people who are experiencing homelessness.
If you have items you’d like to donate, they are looking for:
- New socks – the warmer the better!
- New underwear
- Warm jackets
- Toques and gloves
- Small tarps
- Sleeping bags
All donations can be dropped off Monday-Thursday between 9:30am-4:30pm
1725 Venables Street, Vancouver, BC V5L 2H3
Or by appointment or pick-up: Call 604-251-5275 Ext. 2
