Current Community Initiatives

You can make a difference by supporting one of these local community initiatives that support Good Shepherd programs.

Get Behind Us Fundraiser

Get Behind Us is a fundraising initiative to ensure everyone in our City has access to new underwear and basic necessities. Click here to support the Get Behind Us fundraiser.

Homeless Cars Canada

We are an official charity partner with Homeless Cars Canada Foundation. If you have a car to donate, please visit www.homelesscars.ca

Give for Goods

GiveForGoods.org is an online rummage sale where you can donate your ‘good stuff’ and select a charity as the beneficiary of the sale. It’s like Kijiji, except the charities make the money. Good Shepherd is set up as a benefitting charity.

Host Your Own Fundraising Drives

You can support Good Shepherd by hosting your own fundraising drive! We can help you get started on your own food or clothing drive (virtual or in person). Contact Montana at MHunter@gsch.ca or call 905.528.6565 x3310.
