Thank you so much for your interest in donating a gift to RMHC Toronto.

This holiday season, we are excited to be accepting a variety of donations based on age groups for our families.
A Holiday Wish List for our families can be found below. 

RMHC Toronto continues to follow all safety protocols to protect the vulnerable population that we serve.

We are still following an essential visitor only policy and must limit the number of people on-site at one time.

Everyone looking to drop off their items at our House in Toronto must confirm your item donation and schedule a drop-off time during scheduled hours.

Contact us at giftsinkind@rmhctoronto.ca to book your visit.

Unable to make it to Toronto, but still want to help?

RMHC Toronto has also created an Amazon Wish List. This is an easy and safe way for us to accept items that will make a difference for our families!

Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to pick up gift-in-kind donations.

So that you may be properly greeted and thanked, donations can only be accepted once you have arranged a delivery time in advance. You can schedule this by emailing us at giftsinkind@rmhctoronto.ca.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept donations of hand-made items.

Unfortunately, for the health and safety of the children we support, many of whom have weakened immune systems, we are unable to accept used toys or clothing.
