How We Help

Through a variety of initiatives, Simply Cares partners with local charities to help improve the lives of Canadians in need.

 

We donate money, clothes, food & personal care items directly to the homeless and to local shelters and food banks.

In the coming year we are focused on creating a youth Mentorship Program and developing our Women Influence Network (WIN).
