Way to #WalkforBissell!
Did you know, there are many ways to support Bissell Centre all year long, well after Coldest Night of the Year is over?
You can VOLUNTEER
Volunteers play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission. As a volunteer, the gifts of your time and effort are very much appreciated. Together, we can make a difference in our community!
You can DONATE
Whether you give just once, or start a monthly donation, your support makes a difference!
You can FUNDRAISE
You don’t have to wait for Coldest Night of the Year to get your friends and family involved in supporting those experiencing poverty or houselessness. Start an online fundraiser for your birthday or other celebration. You can also host an event – BBQ, movie night, auction, sports tournament, birthday or bake sale, the options are endless!
You can GIVE GOODS
We distribute goods to folks who are houseless as quickly as possible by keeping our Community Space Closet stocked with basic needs and seasonal items. If donations aren’t practical for people who are unhoused, they may be sold at Thrift Shops. Any profit made at our Thrift Shop goes right back into our programs, which further helps ensure needs are met.
In 2022, we distributed over 38,440 lbs of clothing!
