Items currently in need

It is through the generosity and support of our community that Gillian’s Place has been able to evolve into the organization it is today; a safe haven of support and resources for those experiencing abuse. 

Gift certificates

Donating a gift card allows a mother the flexibility to make necessary purchases for themselves and their children. Our clients often need to buy clothing for school and work, school supplies, fresh food, tableware or small appliances when moving into their new home.  Gift cards help to ensure that they can get exactly what they need, and restores some of the dignity and freedom of choice that was stolen from them.  

The following are examples of gift certificates that are most useful: Grocery cards (President's Choice, Sobeys, Foodland, Food Basics), gas cards, St. Catharines Transit passes, Regional Transit passes, Wal-Mart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Giant Tiger, and Canadian Tire, Christian Benefit Shop
