Thanks to our donors’ generosity, we can continue to serve the homeless here in Oshawa.
We are still accepting food and clothing donations that are clean and in good condition. If you can, please call the Gate first at 905-432-5316 to see whether we are currently looking for the item(s) you are planning on donating.
You can drop off donations any time Mon-Fri (8am-2pm). Once you arrive, please enter either the front door or side door and hand the items to a staff member or volunteer. If the doors are closed, call the centre and someone will come open the door for you to receive your donations. Thank you for thinking of Gate 3:16!
Current List of Supplies Needed (Mar. 25, 2021):
There are three ways for you to give online financial donations: PayPal, CanadaHelps, or E-Transfer.
Please note: CanadaHelps requires no account, but does charge a transaction fee of up to 4% of your donation. PayPal does require you to have a PayPal account, however it is easy to set up, simple to use, and 100% of your donation goes to the Gate. Please choose whichever option is most comfortable for you.
1. Click Here to donate via PayPal

Note: Donations sent through CanadaHelps will receive a tax receipt through CanadaHelps and not Gate 3:16.
