Urgent Need: Winter Weather Protection

Emergency Response Fund (ERF) is an innovative initiative to keep our community safe by providing funds that we can access in the face of emergency circumstances, including extreme weather. ERF allows us to be responsive to the immediate needs of our community in ways that center dignity and respect for all.

We Need Your Help Preventing Frostbite and Hypothermia

Not everyone is able to find shelter and avoid the adverse effects of winter conditions. Edmontonians experiencing homelessness and poverty are much more vulnerable to hypothermia and frostbite, which can result in missing fingers, toes and tips of ears. Our community members deserve to be protected from these effects, and our ERF is designed to deliver that basic safety and dignity.


Our ERF allows us to quickly respond to the immediate needs of our community in an efficient and ongoing manner. Please consider making a monetary donation to our ERF so we can purchase mittens and gloves, hand warmers, toques and socks and other items necessary to keep our community safe during extreme winter weather.

Thank you for supporting your fellow citizens who are vulnerable in our city – your donations save lives.

Donations for Winter Weather Protection

We are not able to accept donations dropped off at our locations. Please consider making a monetary donation to our Emergency Response Fund so we can purchase gloves and winter protection items to combat frostbite and hypothermia in our community.
