We CAN work together to support our community.
The Collingwood Salvation Army provides needed assistance to those in our community who require it most.
Our Food Bank is 100% funded and supplied by the community.
And don’t forget about other non-profit organizations in our community that are being impacted right now. Consider an organization close to you that could also use your support, like My Friend’s House and the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital Foundation. Click on the images below to find out more and consider making a donation if you can.
We want to hear about and share how you are supporting the community, either as a business or an individual!
