Collection Drives

Blankets and bedding. Puzzles and books. Shampoo and soap. Coats and mitts. Get together with your workplace or friends to gather household items—and make a tangible difference in Winnipeggers’ lives right now.

Hosting a Collection Drive at Work

The cost of household items is rising, and everyone in our community deserves to have the basics at home. Hosting a collection drive with your co-workers creates a memorable bond and a mutual understanding of what we can do to hold each other up in times of need.

We will match your workplace with a United Way Winnipeg agency partner. You and your colleagues will gather items that your organization’s clients are currently looking for, and together, you’ll be making a direct impact on people in our community.
