The Denise House/Sedna Women’s Shelter & Support Services Inc. Charitable Donation #10796 5691 RR0001



Please take note that our Donation Centre (where we accept gently used clothing for women and children and small household items) will be closed for the summer (JULY & AUGUST) due to scheduling challenges and also the need for some cleaning and maintenance work.

We ask that you kindly not leave  donations outside as there is no one available to bring items into the building.  Any items left outside will be exposed to the weather elements and result in cost to The Denise House to dispose.

The last day to drop off donations will be Wednesday, June 27, 2018.  Please know that we have sufficient stock of items that our women and children residing in shelter need, so all will continue to be taken care of for necessities.

We will re-open to accept donations on Wednesday, September 5, 2018

If you have NEW items (toiletries, non-perishable food, etc.) please call our office to make arrangements 905-728-7311.

Thank you for your ongoing support and co-operation!
