The Town of Oakville and its community partners will collect:

  • Non-perishable food products
  • Baby supplies (diapers, wipes and formula, etc.)
  • Personal care products (shampoo, soap and toothpaste, etc.)
  • Menstrual products
  • Recreational and artistic equipment (used bicycles will not be accepted)
  • Household items (pots and pans, small appliances, linens and cooking utensils, etc.)

A reminder to residents to bring only new or lightly used items in good condition. Baby supplies, personal care products and menstrual products must be new and unopened.

Community partners will be on hand to review and accept donations before distributing the items to the community. On-site groups include:
