In Kind Donation Update

WINGS appreciates your new and gently used donations!

Due to Covid-19, we have developed new protocol regarding the donation of in kind items. Donations will be accepted by appointment only - 780-426-4985.

Our staff are taking important steps to protect the health of the women and children at WINGS, and can only accept the priority items listed below in our WISH LIST. We must closely monitor the quantity of in kind donations being received as we have limited space, and these donations must go through a quarantine process. Due to this process, in kind donations are distributed to the families less frequently in order to minimize the risk of transmission of COVID-19. WINGS must also protect the health of its staff and community, and may be unable to accept in-kind donations at various times.

We are grateful to have many wonderful friends in our community who support our families with in kind donations. We appreciate your continued kindness and patience.

Please consider making a financial donation that will assist us with food, resources, and supplies during this time.

Facts About Family Violence

Violence against women happens in all cultures and religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group.

Women's Voices

Being able to get into WINGS changed my life and my son’s life too. We are safe from my ex-spouse. I have learned to heal and grow. I have learned to let of things I can’t change. I have learned to forgive myself and my ex. I have grown stronger. WINGS is a life saver for me.

The counsellors are great and very helpful. I look forward to ing to group; to know you are not alone and that other women have been in similar situations. My son loves daycare; all the other kids to play with and develop friendships.

The province really needs programs like this and more of them. The shelters are full. It is easy to say, not my problem - until it happens to you or someone you know, like your Mom, Aunt, Niece, Sister, or Friend. It is devastating to families and we all need help up.
