Donate to Harbour House Shelter

Monetary Donations

Monies donated to Harbour House can be designated to a specific purpose - i.e. help with capital costs, support for programs and services, projects identified through the Families Supporting Families annual campaign, etc. Unspecified donations will be allocated to our operational budget and will fund anything from staffing and groceries to paying for electricity, etc. Charitable tax receipts are issued for donations over $25.00.

Gift Card Donations

Harbour House always appreciates gift card donations. Many women who engage with our services have lived with no choices. A gift card allows them to empower themselves by choosing exactly what they need to purchase. Gift cards for groceries (Superstore, Sobeys etc.), are very important when setting up their new home. We also love being able to provide gift cards for pharmacies, gas stations, clothing stores and even for hair salons. If interested in donating gift cards, please call 902-543-3999 to make arrangements.

Free Store

In last year's fundraising campaign, Families Supporting Families, we raised money to set up a “free store” at Harbour House where women from our shelter can access items needed to set up their new homes. As many women leave situations in a hurry and without taking much with them, when they secure a new home for themselves and their children, they need everything.

Donations are welcome for our food bank, new household items (pots, pans, cooking items, utensils, cleaning supplies, etc.). Please call (902) 543-3999 to discuss if you are interested in donating these items.
