Our WISH List

**Effective December 4** Thank you for your patience – we are now able to accept clothing & toiletries at our office again. With the rain and cold weather now upon us, donations of mitts, touques, umbrellas, jackets and boots are much appreciated.   Unfortunately, the recent flood caused extensive damage to our offices, so if you’re also able to support us financially we would be grateful!

Physical donations help our budget to go further and ensures the women who access WISH receive the essentials that many of us take for granted to live a healthy, comfortable life. Thanks to your donations, a wide range of items are available to women who would otherwise go without.  If you don’t have any of the  items below, but would still like to support WISH, financial donations are always appreciated.  You can donate here!

Donations may be dropped at our office Monday to Friday between 10:00am and 6:00pm:
WISH Administrative Office
334 Alexander Street /Vancouver, BC / V6A 1C3

On weekends and holidays, donations may be delivered via the gate in the back lane between 1:00pm and 5:00pm only.

Please do not leave donations outside the building without being received by WISH staff.
