Find is excited to announce that we were able to furnish 145 homes in the month of November with community donations, moving 251 people out of homelessness and into their new homes.
This time of year we reflect of the difficulties and barriers our neighbors who are sleeping rough face. Between the cold, the rain and the treacherous conditions, we focus our efforts on supporting the Housing First program and furnishing as many spaces as we can.
Winters in Edmonton are tough, but the generosity of our Edmonton community speaks volumes.
As always, please consider Find for donations of your gently used, good condition furniture and home goods. We are happy to accept donations any day of the week between 10am-6pm at the tent in the parking lot. We also have pick up slots available for apartment sized kitchen tables, standing dressers, sofa/love seats and tv stands. You can schedule that by calling our team at 780 988 1717.
Please note that Find will be open over Christmas this year for the housing first program AND our retail location!
We will be observing the following hours:
Dec 24 - 10am-2pm
Dec 25 & 26 - Closed
Dec 27-30 - 10am-5pm
Dec 31 - 10am-2pm
Jan 1 & 2 - Closed
We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing to end homelessness together!
