SEND ITEMS TO PEOPLE IN NEED COVID-19 has made it challenging for charities to manage in-kind donations, so we created a way to help get every charity the items they need. Your team can grant wishes virtually, receive a tax receipt and the donations are shipped safely to the charity or you can choose to pack them yourself as a team building activity! You can choose to have a Wishlist curated for a specific charity, or support our communities’ greatest needs by fundraising towards our Nova Scotia Community Outreach Program which works with charities across the province to support people who need help the most. This free program is offered by The Unity Values Foundation, email Support@ to get started!
