Looking for:

Hats, Gloves, & Backpacks

With the weather turning colder we are looking for more winter hats and gloves to keep our patrons warm! We are also searching for backpacks, as they are essential for carrying around one’s belongings.

Thank you so much for your generous support! 💕Thanks to all of you, my clients, for helping us support a great local effort. Gate 3:16 helps the local transient and homeless youths in @downtownoshawa . I had the opportunity today to chat with Allen, he told us of a few new initiatives they have started. One being rehab support for those who wish to do the hard work and make changes. Not just an in & out program but a full year of support. What a blessing for those wanting a change. Dropping off our check today feel like a drop in the bucket… but that’s how buckets get filled. Again thank you all. #warmth #shelter #food #aplacetobelong #gate3-16 See MoreSee Less
