Many of our member organizations have been very active in supporting newly arrived refugee families as they settle in Manitoba. We appreciate the generous and welcoming response from Manitoba communities.
Some have been accepting some in-kind donations to support those families, although many are restricted in the kinds of donations they can accept due to storage limitations. Contact us to be connected to organizations accepting donations.
The Salvation Army thrift stores have also agreed to offer vouchers to government assisted refugee families for free items from their stores. They accept donations at their many locations in Winnipeg. See http://thriftstore.ca/manitoba/locations to find one near you.
There are also opportunities to volunteer with settlement and community organizations to help these families. Contact us to find out how.
Landlords interested in offering rental housing to newcomer families can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
