How You Help!


One of our major fundraisers is our Thrift Shop. We're always looking for donations of gently used clothing, household items, books, toys, decor, bedding and more. Drop items off at our back door (located in the WCS parking lot). Simply ring the doorbell and we will help you unload. Click here for more info.​



Sponsor or participate in one of our many fundraising events. Or host your own fundraising event with proceeds supporting one of WCS programs or services. Click here for more info.



If you are looking for somewhere to donate a few hours of your time, WCS is always looking to add to our team. Visit our Volunteer page for more information on how to get involved.


         GIVE FOOD

​Donate food and hygiene items by placing food in drop off bins at your local grocery store or at the Woolwich Food Bank (located at WCS, 5 Memorial Ave, Elmira). Please make sure items' best before date has not expired.

In any given year WCS will provide assistance to 1 out of 5 individuals in our community alone. Donating today will help someone in our community tomorrow. Click here for more info.
