Out of the Cold Task Force members and Charles Brand, Owner and Operator of Appealing Environments and the Collingwood Rock Shop


Thank you so much to Charles Brand, owner and operator of Appealing Environments and the Collingwood Rock Shop for running a weekend fundraiser to support our program. For every Himalayan Salt lamp sold for $25, Brand made a donation of $25 to Out of the Cold Collingwood, plus gave customers a $10 gift card for the shop. In total, the fundraiser brought in for our temporary overnight emergency shelter program.


As a result of COVID-19, Out of The Cold Collingwood will remain open until such time as threats posed by the pandemic have passed.  People experiencing homelessness or at risk of this, continue to receive support through community navigators who can be reached by dialing 211.  For those requiring emergency accommodations, intake for will continue each night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 250 Peel Street in Collingwood.  Guests will then be relocated to alternative locations where self-isolation and physical distancing can be safely practiced. 


If you are at risk or experiencing homelessness in the Collingwood area, please start by calling 211 which is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.


If you are wanting to offer help to the program, please see our “I Want To Help” on this page for updates on our urgent needs.
