Urgent Need: Keep Our Community Warm
Emergency Response Fund
Our newest initiative in keeping our community safe, our Emergency Response Fund will provide funds that we can access in the face of any emergency circumstances, including extreme weather. Our Emergency Response Fund will allow us to be responsive to the immediate needs of our community in ways that are efficient and sustainable.
We Need Your Help Preventing Frostbite
Winter is fast approaching, bringing with it the challenges presented by Edmonton’s cold weather. For many experiencing homelessness it will be difficult to access warm places as the temperature drops. Being outdoors for extended periods in weather -0°C and below can lead to hypothermia and frostbite, including the loss of fingers and toes. There is an urgent need to have additional winterwear to give to our community, especially those who are living rough and those spending long periods outside. There are multiple ways you can help.
You can give the gift of frostbite prevention this holiday season by donating to our Emergency Response fund. This allows us to purchase warm gloves and winter items as needed and prevent frostbite for our community. Our Emergency Weather Response fund allows us to be responsive to the immediate needs of our community in ways that are efficient and sustainable!
Because of our partnership with Echo Promotions, we can increase the impact of your donation through preferred pricing they offer to Boyle Street. This preferred pricing allows us to deliver clean and warm clothing during cold, wet weather. Please consider stretching your dollar and helping more people by making a monetary donation today.
“Echo Promotions is grateful for the opportunity to support the vulnerable people in our community through amazing partners like Boyle Street.”
Another way to give is “in-kind,” which means to donate goods such as mitts, socks, and jackets rather than funds. Click here to learn more about our in-kind donation process.
Your gift might be the most impactful gift you have ever given, as these donations are lifesaving during our extreme winters. Thank you for supporting your fellow citizens who are vulnerable in our city and for helping spread the joy and kindness the season has to offer.
