According to a survey by Salvation Army, over 3 million Canadians live in poverty, which equals over 3 million people who may go without gifts, warm meals, and in many cases homes for Christmas this year.
Around the holidays many people love to take the time to give back but if you’re looking to do something a little different this holiday season here are a few gift ideas you might not have thought of donating before.
– Winter accessories likes toques, mitts, and scarves
– Jackets, snowpants, and boots
– Gift cards for food
– Feminine products and other toiletries
– Bus passes
Of course there are many organizations around the city accepting donations at all times to help out those less fortunate, but even just calling ahead or looking online at what type of donations they are specifically in need of can help your donation make that much more of an impact.
