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

While not all children who witness violence suffer direct physical abuse, they frequently develop long-term behavioural and psychological problems. Exposure to violence can affect children’s brain development and ability to learn, and lead to a wide range of behavioural and emotional issues such as anxiety, aggression, bullying, phobias, and insomnia.

(Alberta Children and Youth Services, October 2008. Available: Child Abuse / Children Exposed to Violence Information Sheet)

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

Daily groups help with not feeling like you are the only idiot who fell for a partner’s lies.

Weekly counselling helps with finding ways to get over the blame, shame, guilt and anger, and start healthier habits.

Bread donations help with weekly grocery budget. Clothing donations also help with the budget.

WINGS is needed in this province. Our children deserve to see their mothers safe. Our children will take over this world eventually, isn''t it better to fill their eyes with hopes and dreams than fear and despair? Do it for the kids!
