Gifts in Kind

Your help is needed more than ever right now. Everyday hundreds of clients seeking food and clothing come to The Scott Mission. Many people have recently been laid off and never imagined they might need the assistance of a food bank. This is why your support today is so important.

Please consider hosting a food and/or clothing drive at your work, church or school … every little bit helps!

Please drop off all donations to the Mission Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Please do not leave donations at the front of our building or at our door. Ring the doorbell and our staff will assist you. Thanks!

For those living in Toronto that would like to book an appointment for a donation pick-up, please call 416-923-8872. Please note that we will try to pick up your items on a day when we have others in the area in order to best utilize our driver’s time; it may take 1-2 weeks to schedule your appointment.

Many of our supporters and donors have asked what they can do to support The Scott Mission’s clients during this time.  We have experienced a significant decline in food donations over the past two weeks.  While we would appreciate donations of food, we understand that citizens should remain in their homes during this crisis.  If you would like to provide a financial gift so that we can purchase needed supplies, please donate online at, by phone at 416-923-2400, or by mailing a cheque to The Scott Mission, 502 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 2H1.  We are grateful for your care. God bless you and your family!
