Provide the Essentials


The Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter provides essential items such as clothing, underwear and toiletries for the women and children we serve, who often need to flee quickly and do not have time to prepare and pack. Although we accept new items (tags on), financial contributions are preferred as it allows us to purchase items in bulk and buy exactly what is needed by the women and children we help.


We have different giving options throughout the year. CLICK HERE for a list of our essential items.


Donation drop-offs must be scheduled in advance. 
To arrange a time to drop off your donation or to ask questions regarding specific items we need, call the Donations Hotline at 403.539.5130 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Many thanks to those individuals and corporations for ensuring our shelves are stocked with toiletries, clothing and toys for our clients. Please make sure to provide your purchase receipt as you may be eligible for a tax receipt.

Please note: we do not accept donations of furniture or household items. Due to health and safety concerns, we cannot accept any used items.
