Making a donation is a wonderful way to support our program! We welcome donations of gently used toys, art supplies, building materials, recyclables etc. It's amazing what will spark a child's creativity! Loose parts such as crates, boxes, wood, spools, fabric, wool, buttons, containers of all sizes and tires can be used in a variety of ways from art projects or as props for children's imaginative play. We also accept wood donations which allows us to construct areas such as climbing structures or mud kitchens.
Here are some suggestions for items we use frequently:
paper, cardboard, boxes, buttons, cars and trucks, books, puzzles, outdoor equipment, dress up clothes, accessories such as hats, bags, old jewelry, nuts and bolts, hay bales, wooden or plastic crates, plastic eavestrough, plumbing pipes, kitchen gadgets...
If you have items at home that you are not using or are going to throw out, check with us! We just might be able to make use of them!
St. Andrews Child Care Inc. is a registered charity in Canada and is partnered with the Canada Helps organization.
If you would like to make a monetary donation, we would direct you to the Canada Helps site where donations can be made via credit card or other means. If choosing this option, you will receive a charitable donation receipt directly from the Canada Helps organization.
By making a donation, your dollars directly support the high quality of care we are dedicated to providing for young children and families in the communities we serve.
If you work for a company that has a “United Way” fundraising drive and/or “All Charities Campaign” drive, you can direct your donation to St. Andrews Child Care Inc. You just need to submit a request form to your campaign organizer or chairperson at work. This will ensure that your donations are passed on to us. Please invite your family and friends to join you in this!
