TO MAKE A FINANCIAL DONATION, you can donate online and get an instant tax receipt here and select Collingwood & South Georgian Bay Homeless Services or, you can make a Cheque payable to Out of The Cold and mail it to Community Connection at PO Box 683, Collingwood, ON L9Y 4E8.


PLEASE NOTE that we are unable to accept donations of household items, clothing, outwear and footwear as we do not have storage capacity at this time.

Currently, we are most in need of a little bit of storage space in a heated space where we could put 3 or 4 shelving units that we can access. Please contact fundraising@busbycentre.ca if you can help.


We’re looking for meal donations of 12-16 portions of a prepared dinner meal. Examples: casserole, lasagna, soup, meatloaf, curry or stews.  We also appreciate baked goods such as muffins or cookies. All donors who wish to contribute fresh meal donations MUST be pre-approved and follow strict protocols and fresh meal donations not pre-approved will have to be turned away.  For more information or to sign up as a meal donor, please contact ootcmeals@communityconnection.ca

The community drop-off point for the Food and Meal Program ONLY is New Life Church at 28 Tracey Lane from 3:30 pm – 4:00 pm Monday – Friday ONLY. There will be a marked donation bin outside where people can simply drop off any of the requested items. We appreciate advanced notice so we can recognize all donors and their contributions. Please email our meal program coordinator HERE.
