Welcome to the Brampton & Greater Area (GTA) Chapter of Warming Families!!!
Find out how you can craft or donate warm items for those who are homeless, displaced or in nursing homes.
Items collected are donated to three shelters in the GTA area: Interim Place II, a shelter for women and children; Wilkinson Road Shelter, a homeless shelter; and the Honeychurch Family Life Resource Centre, a shelter for women and children, the latter two are both administered by the Salvation Army. When there is a special project additional shelters in the GTA will receive the overflow items.
Enjoy your spring...

Winter is around the corner...
We're in that transition period, partially fall and partially winter. Now is a great time to start thinking about helping out with winter related items. This time of year we welcome hats, ear warmers, scarves, gloves/mittens and scarves. There is also a need for slippers. Or if you are ambitious maybe even consider making a blanket.
For a complete list of suggested items to donate please go to the `How to Help` page.
