Community Support During the Holidays

The board of Barrie Out of the Cold would like to thank the community for their support over the holiday season. This can be a difficult time of year for many of our guests who are experiencing homelessness and may be away from their families. The gift of a new pair of long underwear, a Tim Horton’s gift card or a warm pair of mitts can mean so much. If you would like to make a cash donation you can do so here.

At this time of year our most-needed clothing donations include:

  • long underwear (new)
  • underwear (new)
  • socks (new)
  • boots (new, gently used)
  • heavy winter coats (new, gently used)

Our most-needed food donations include:

  • canned meat (tuna, salmon, ham) for packed lunches for our guests
  • juice boxes and bottled water
  • packaged snacks like granola bars, pudding cups and the like
  • bread, rolls

Please contact us at to find out where to make your donation.
