All donations matched on Giving Tuesday

As the holiday season approaches, the challenges facing Calgary families have grown more pressing. In the heart of our city, a silent hope persists — a hope for a Christmas Eve with a warm bed, a hearty meal, and the comforts of home for families in need.
But not all holiday wishes are equal. For some, this wish is for a warm, secure shelter where their family can find solace, rather than enduring the bitter cold of the season. For others, the ultimate gift is seeing their worries fade and their luck take a turn. And for children, it’s the simple joy of safety and parents whose worries have been lifted.

This holiday season, can you help make these wishes come true? Every dollar you contribute to Inn from the Cold today becomes a lifeline for families in need.

Gifts In-Kind

At this time, Inn from the Cold has to pause the donations of physical goods and items. We are grateful that you have considered us for your donation. We ask that you please consider donating your physical goods to the Drop-In Centre’s Free Goods Program,  or Women In Need Society, as we partner with these organizations so the families at The Inn will still be able to benefit.

If you are looking to donate items, as a way of support, we are always in need of gift cards for our families,  and we will occasionally put out calls for critical needs like diapers or formula on our social media.  At this time, we do have a need for new Winter Gear (boots and jackets). Please follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to stay up-to-date on our urgent needs.


Spread the word!

Our greatest resource is you — our dedicated community of supporters. Tell your friends, family and colleagues about the important work of Inn from the Cold and what we are doing to help end family homelessness in Calgary.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Youtube, then spread the word.

Donate Today

Your gift today will make a positive impact in the lives of children and families in a housing crisis. We believe a community where no child or family is homeless is possible. Thank you for helping make this a reality.
