Our Essential Care Program is a fundamental pillar of Regeneration. The ability to provide our guests with basic human needs such as food and clothing is vital for their survival. As such, we graciously accept donations two ways: directly at our centre, located at 156 Main Street North, and at our newly opened, Regeneration Thrift Store.
We continually welcome drop-off donations of clean, gently used men or women’s clothing items. As we get closer to the winter months, our high demand items include:
For our care kits, we provide our guests with essential hygiene items. These items help our guests hold on to a sense of dignity while protecting their health. Urgent items include:
Items may be dropped off at our centre at 56 Main Street North, Monday to Friday between 7AM – 2:30PM. If possible, contact our office at 905-796-5888 to advise of your drop off so we can ensure a staff member is there to greet you.
At Regeneration, we will never turn away safe, fresh food, or non-perishable goods. What our centre doesn’t use or need will be shared with our partner centres and food banks. Currently, our high demand items include:
In addition to receiving clothing directly at our centre, we are proud to announce the August 30, 2019 opening of the Regeneration Thrift Store: a 25,000 sq foot facility that 100% supports the work and care-giving efforts of Regeneration Centre.
