The Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society is grateful for the support of our community.  Should you wish to donate something from our wish list please call us to make arrangements to drop off your gently used or new item(s). Should you have something not listed on our wish list that you would like to donate, please contact us to find out if we are currently in need of that item.

If you have an item to donate that is not included on this list, but still believe one of our programs may have a use for it, please contact us via email at or call (403) 527-8223, M-F 8:00-4:30.

We are not able to accept donations of used clothing and furniture due to our lack of storage space. Please donate used clothing and gently used furniture to one of our community partners so that, in turn, our residents can take advantage of your generosity:
