Time to Give

Even in isolation, you can help these organizations help those who need it most.

This time of need is also Edmonton’s time to shine. Check this list of local charities to see how you can help today (and for any changes going forward).

Edmonton’s Food Bank

While taking all the necessary precautions, the Food Bank is still accepting monetary and non-perishable food items to give to those without adequate and nutritious food access. Find out how you can donate today.

Edmonton Humane Society

Unfortunately, pet adoptions are temporarily suspended, but you can still contribute to the Humane Society’s annual budget and help keep the animals on hand healthy and happy (and spayed and neutered) by giving a monetary donation.

Help YEG’s Restaurant Workers

Without restaurant workers, we wouldn’t get to enjoy Edmonton’s fantastic food scene. Directly help those who keep our restaurants running by donating to  this GoFundMe page started by Ben Staley for restaurant workers. And if you or someone you know has been laid off from the restaurant industry, email yegfoodgfm@gmail.com to be included on the recipients’ list.

Inclusion Alberta

Inclusion Alberta (in partnership with Value Village) supports children and adults with developmental disabilities, and you can too! Simply pack a bag of clothing and household goods, book a pickup time and someone will come by with a truck (you can also drop items off).

MOMS Canada

Donate clothing and small household items to help the emotional, physical and spiritual well being of single mothers. In addition to monetary donations, edmontondonations.ca is providing free home pick up, so just pick a date and donate!

The Salvation Army

While the Salvation Army thrift stores are closed, you can still help children and families in need by giving money to vulnerable and marginalized people in our community.

United Way

United Way creates pathways out of poverty in our community, lifting people out and providing a safety net. From coats and care kits to furniture and cash, there are many ways to help people need.
