Other ways to help

Women In Crisis (Algoma) Inc. is excited to share the news of a newly formed partnership with the Kidney Foundation.

Women and children fleeing abusive situations often arrive at the shelter with little to no belongings. All the donations you so generously give to Women In Crisis will be sorted and items that the residents of Women In Crisis are not in need of will be given to the Kidney Foundation who will turn the donation into much needed funds for kidney research and educational programs that help fight kidney disease – additionally a portion of these funds will come back to WIC to provide for specific client needs of the Shelter.

We ask that you PLEASE sort your donations separately as follows:

  1. Household and Starting Over
  • Blankets, bedding and linens
  • Draperies, pillows and cushions
  • Luggage
  • Small working appliances (lamps, toasters etc.)
  • Dishes/cutlery
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Personal products
  1. Clothing/Personal Needs
  • All gently used clothing
  • Footwear and outerwear
  • Belts, ties and purses
  • Yarn, fabric and patterns

All Donations can be dropped off in two Blue Donation bins located in our Driveway.

If items are BRAND NEW (tags still attached) PLEASE ring the bell
