Spirit Bundle Donations

For our Spirit Bundle Program, we provide food security to families in the Ontario Region and household or personal items. There are currently 50,000 Indigenous people in the Waterloo Region and Guelph Area we would like to support with our Spirit Bundle Offerings during this time.

We have partnered with the food bank and other organizations to ensure that basic food needs are met for all Indigenous families apart of our program, however, there are other household and personal items that we need support with listed below. Our support may be all that the Indigenous community receives, which is why all the donations we receive are important and beneficial.

Physical Donations

For our Spirit Bundle Program, it is a huge benefit if we had the donation of items that we can give to Indigenous families in need. If you would like to support this program, please consider donating any of these items below:

Monetary Donations

Any monetary donations to this program will go to our transportation systems that support the delivery of these items to Indigenous families all over Ontario. Currently, we are trying to raise funds for a refrigerated truck that would allow us to deliver temperature sensitive food items safely and efficiently.
