Donate To Family Centre


Thank you for your interest in donating to Anishnabeg Outreach’s Indigenous Child and Family Centre!

We are extremely excited to be building Waterloo Region’s first Indigenous Child and Family Centre and are grateful for your generous support. With limited government funding, your donations enable our non-profit organization to create an inviting space where children and families will see themselves reflected and celebrate and learn in culturally-dynamic ways.

There are four ways that you can donate to help create this incredible supportive place for Indigenous children and families:


1. Make a charitable donation as a holiday gift for a loved one
2. Donate toys or art supplies from our list below
3. Donate formula or diapers
4. Donate gift cards to local stores to purchase formula, diapers, toys, food, and art supplies
5. Donate gently used toys and books

Thank you for helping to create Waterloo’s first Indigenous child and family centre!

Gratefully,
Anishnabeg Outreach Child and Family Centre

Make a Charitable Donation as a Holiday Gift for a Loved One


Your charitable donation on behalf of a loved one will support Indigenous families in Waterloo Region by enabling AO to purchase books, toys, formula, and diapers. You will receive two cards in the mail: a Thank You for your generosity and a Donation Card and accompanying charitable receipt to be presented at Christmas.

Charitable donations can be made by:
e-transfer to stephen@aocan.org
or by cheque mailed to 236 Woodhaven Road, Kitchener, Ontario, N2C 1V5.

Along with your donation, please send the name and address of the person receiving the present (for creating the charitable receipt in the person’s name), as well as your address (for mailing the cards).

Holiday Cheer Charitable Donation – a charitable donation on behalf of a loved one will support Indigenous families in Waterloo Region.

Any Value Appreciated!



Donate Toys or Art Supplies from Wintergreen.ca


The toys on this list reflect Indigenous ways of learning and are fun and safe for the children 0-6 years who will be visiting the centre. The toys, books, and materials will be available for families to play with freely in the centre, incorporated into more structured learning activities, and available for families to borrow from our library. Some items are listed more than once because the centre is a place for connection—multiple children will play with the same toys as they learn to share and play together—and because learning kits will be created for children and families to continue learning at home.

The items on this list can be purchased from Wintergreen online.
Each image on the list is linked to a page to add the item to your cart.
Items can be shipped or delivered in person to 236 Woodhaven Road, Kitchener, N2C 1V5.

Please email Ellie Murphy (ellie@aocan.org or 519-208-5333) if you decide to order an item and to arrange a time to deliver your item if you are delivering in person.

Your Support Is Appreciated!
