St. John’s Mission seeking donations of cold-weather clothing for those in need

The St. John's Thrift Store on Danforth Avenue, near Woodbine Avenue.

St. John’s Mission is asking the people of the east Toronto community to donate extreme weather supplies for the homeless, under housed, children, and seniors this month.

St John’s Mission is looking for new or gently used items such as winter gloves, coats, boots/shoes, long johns, socks, sleeping bags, and backpacks to be donated to protect the health and safety of St John’s Mission guests this winter.

Winter is an uncomfortable and dangerous time for everyone, and to help support the community St John’s distributes weather-appropriate clothing and basic necessities to those in need.

In instances where a surplus of items are received, these items go to St John’s Thrift store and proceeds go back into supporting St John’s Mission’s life-changing programs and services.

St John’s Mission number one priority is to always get appropriate items in the hands of those who need it most.

To drop off items, please visit St John’s Thrift Store at 2155 Danforth Ave., near Woodbine Avenue. Hours are Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

For more information, call 416-698-9848.
