Youth Without Shelter (YWS) provides a safe place to live and steady support for homeless youth while they are are going to school or work.

Islington’s annual donations to the shelter, typically in November, help 53 young people feel cared for and loved. During COVID-19, when going to school is not possible and working is very difficult, YWS needs our help.

YWS is currently in great need of the following items:

Food
Juice in shelf-stable packaging
Dry instant packaged soup (e.g., Cup-a-Soup)
Snacks (cookies, chips, puddings)

Clothing*
T-shirts
Shorts
Flip-flops
*New, never-worn condition only

Financial
Drop off a cheque on donation day or deposit in the mailbox at the South Narthex entrance of the church near the Giving Garden

Send an e-transfer to office@islingtonunited.org and note “Youth Without Shelter” in the memo field. Also include your mailing address if you are not in our database.

Gift Cards
Grocery stores

On June 23 (1 – 4 pm), 24 (10:30 am – 2:30 pm) and 30 (10 am – 4:00 pm) drop off your donations to the parking lot at the front of the church, by the Chapel entrance.

Rain or shine, Michelle Reece and friends will be on hand to safely receive your items while maintaining social distance.
