Supplies to Thrive Community Catalogue

 

Our Supplies to Thrive catalogue, connects northern communities with goods made available by groups, businesses and volunteers through hard work. These groups have made products like winter clothing, books, school supplies, and baby items available to be given specifically to northern and remote communities. 

For Northern Communities: 

Before applying, please make sure you have all the information requested. We ask that you provide as much detail as possible. If you have any questions, please reach out to our Outreach Manager at programs@truenorthaid.ca or by phone at 613-305-2331. 
If you have applied for supplies before and were denied, please send an email to amanda@truenorthaid.ca to see if you still would qualify for support before filling this application out. 

For Southern partners and community groups wanting to make a difference: 

Hello and thank you for considering True North Aid and the communities we support as part of your group’s initiative.  If you can provide a bulk number of supplies in new or like new condition, please contact amanda@truenorthaid.ca to discuss and set up a phone call.
