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.

Happy New Year! Wishing everyone a wonderful 2014.
Depending on where you live these past couple of weeks might have been challenging weather-wise. Here in the Greater Toronto Area we are still dealing with the after effects of a wicked ice storm. The temperature has also dipped again into the frigid category. This is shaping up to be a cold and wicked winter so more than ever is the need for warm items. We are looking for donations of hats, headbands, gloves or mittens, scarves, etc. If you are not into crafts we also accept donations of purchased items.
