The first Community Give & Get Centre opened on January 7th, 2017 at the above location (back of the building) in downtown Barrie.

To date, including our pilot project, more than 8,050 visitors have come to the Centre in Barrie, ON, to pick up much needed items including: adult, children and infant clothing, shoes, boots, coats, toys, small household products, back to school kits, backpacks with essential sundries, socks and underwear for those living on the street or struggling to make ends meet, all for free

Community donations, along with the hard work and commitment of our volunteers made this possible by receiving more than 68,200 items and an estimated $328,000 going back into the local community to those in need. To witness the joy, happy tears, smiles and gratitude of those that visit the centre moves all of us to continue doing all that we possibly can.

My vision and dream is that one day every community in Canada will have a Give & Get Centre to help those in need. But I need to be realistic. I have terminal cancer; my physical condition and endurance is deteriorating and I know I will not live long enough to see this happen. However, I will do everything I can now raising awareness and funds to open more centres across the country. Striving to lay the foundation in making my vision and dream a reality after I am gone.

The centre is open for fall/winter hours to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Item donations are accepted during these times. Other non profit organizations providing social support services to our local community can contact us at 647-866-4105 to arrange an appointment to come to the centre to obtain items free of charge for their clients, visitors or referrals.
