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 two shelters in the GTA area: the Honeychurch Family Life Resource Centre a shelter for women and children; Wilkinson Road Shelter, a homeless shelter; and , a shelter for women and children, both shelters are administered by the Salvation Army. When there is a special project additional shelters in the GTA will receive the overflow items.
Despite the calendar stating it's officially spring we are still held in the grip of O' Man Winter. There is still a need for warm items such as: hats, ear warmers, scarves, mittens, and slippers. I will collect winter type items up until April 23rd; will resume collecting winter items November 2018.
Or if you are ambitious maybe even consider making squares and assembling a blanket.
