Once a month the Centre provides to its clients a kit of non-perishable food along with some fruits, vegetables and breads.
Clients may take 10 clothing items per month per person, provided that the total amount does not exceed 40 items for a family with 4 or more. Clients may visit the Clothing Department more than once a month. A nominal fee of $2.00 is due for every visit.
Other Household Items
The Centre has a very limited supply of household items (plates, glasses, books, small electrical devices, shoes, etc.) that are given free of charge to our clients. Some items are sold for a nominal fee which helps the Centre defray some of its costs.
Apart from its regular programs, the Centre also runs some seasonal programs such as:
- Summer Camp – the Centre provides the financial resources to send some of the children of its registered clients to summer camp.
- Backpack Program – the Centre provides backpack for children of its registered clients at the beginning of the school year. This program is limited to children from senior kindergarten to age six.
- Christmas Toys – at Christmas time the Centre provides registered clients with toys for their children ages 0-12.
- Gift Certificates – at Christmas time the Centre provides a limited number of gift certificates for its registered clients.
