Women In Crisis Thanks Community for Continued Support; No Longer Taking Used Items


Women In Crisis (Algoma) Inc. would like to thank the community for their tremendous support over the years.  It is through your generosity that they have been able to support women and children in many different ways.

After much consideration and heartbreak, they have decided that we are no longer able to accept used clothing, toys or books at the Shelter. The donation bins have become a Health & Safety issue for donors, women and children and Shelter Staff. This has been a very difficult decision, but they can no longer have the risk it creates for all involved.

With the support of the Kidney Foundation, you will still be able to donate to the Shelter by dropping off your donation at 424 Pim St. or having your donations picked up at your home. If your bags or boxes of donations are clearly marked “For Women In Crisis” they will credit it and then make a cash donation to WIC monthly. With this money, WIC will be able to purchase new clothes for the women and children as needed and any other items they might require as they move forward in their life free from abuse and violence!

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact WIC at 705-759-1230.

*This does not include new clothing, household items or furniture. Please call for further direction.
