Dans la rue does everything it can to provide the basics to homeless and at-risk youth, in addition to other services and solutions. Every year, we hand out more than 70,000 cans of food, serve 25,000 hot meals, and give out thousands of pairs of socks and underwear as well as t-shirts, sweaters, boots, shoes, coats, soap, shampoo, and toothbrushes.
We need your help to provide these essentials to our youth. You can make a difference by getting your friends, co-worker, or community group to organize a collection of the following items: Meal-in-a-can (Chunky Soup, Cordon Bleu, Chef Boyardee), non-perishable food, Tim Horton’s gift cards ($5 per card maximum), back packs, new men’s and women’s socks, men’s shorts, men’s/women’s deodorant, razors and shaving cream.
Please contact us before you get started.
We have many helpful suggestions that will make your job easier and our needs do change throughout the year. Please call us at 514.526.5222 or contact us at [email protected] .
Dans la rue gratefully accepts material donations directly from companies. Tax receipts are available for new products only. Proper documentation must be provided before we can issue a receipt.
