Material Donations

Women on the Rise operates a fabulous, free boutique which we call 'The Distro Room'.  This service is volunteer-run and open to all.

Please consider donating your gently-used clothes, shoes, and outerwear for babies, kids, and women.  Cribs, strollers, pack & plays, and other supplies for young children are always appreciated!


To address our mandate of encouraging accessibility and breaking down barriers of isolation, we are now accepting donations of tech devices like phones, tablets, and laptops that will be distributed on a needs-based priority system.

Donations can be made during regular office hours.  Please call ahead to confirm your delivery.  Thank you!


Volunteering with Women on the Rise is a great way to make a difference in your community. We are always grateful for folks to help us with:

  • Greeting visitors and inviting them to join our programs and events

  • Sorting and organizing our clothing donations

  • Translating documents from English to French and other languages

  • Light administrative duties in our office

  • Lending your expertise to our programming- if you have an idea for a workshop, please let us know!
