AARCS Wish list

IMPORTANT NOTICE DUE TO COVID-19

We are currently limiting our material donation intake to our HIGH NEEDS ONLY during the current health crisis. With reduced volunteer and staff capacity, we can currently only accept NEW donated items, with the exception of towels as we are in need of used CLEAN towels at this time.

  • We are kindly asking the public to limit their donations to clean towels and items from our CURRENT NEEDS list that follows. Thank you for your kindness and understanding.

AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANY LINENS OTHER THAN CLEAN TOWELS!

WE DO NOT ACCEPT PILLOWS AND STUFFED ANIMALS

  • We are always happy to accept cash donations or electronic money transfers to [email protected] so we can purchase our highest-need items at this time. We encourage curbside drop-off for new donated items. Our reception area is limited to one visitor at a time.

*If you have a large donation or items that should not be stored outside for a short time and would like to make an appointment for drop off please email [email protected]

Below is a wish list of things we need to keep our shelter running and our foster homes supplied with all the things they need. Please note that gently used, second-hand items are perfectly acceptable and welcome once COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed.

Donations can be dropped off at Safe Haven in our Donation Bin at 5060 – 74 Ave SE, Calgary, AB or North Haven in our indoor donation bin at 8108 Coronet Rd NW, Edmonton, AB (please email [email protected] to arrange drop off time).
