Wish List

Naomi's Centre provides confidential, safe and secure services and resources.

Naomi’s Family Resource Centre would like to thank all those who have donated to Naomi’s Centre over the last year.

Due to the overwhelming generosity of the community and the lack of storage space, we are sorry to advise people that we are unable to accept used clothing or household items. We are however still in need of NEW items to use within the Shelter itself.

Listed below are items that we need the most. This list is updated regularly to reflect the changing seasons as well as the changing needs of the centre. You will notice that the list is organized by primary and secondary needs. The primary needs are those that are currently needed most and the secondary needs reflect items that may be out of season or less of a priority. If you have any questions please call us at (613) 774-2838. Thank you very much for your generous donations.
