COVID-19: Basic Needs List

Help our low-income community members stay safe and comfortable

Basic Needs

Below is a list of essential basic needs items and additional isolation supplies that we’ve compiled to support our community members during this difficult time. In an effort to reduce the spread of the virus we are reducing the handling of these items and the number of deliveries to our sites.

If you are able to provide an item in bulk quantity, please contact us at funddevelopment@thealex.ca.

Otherwise, we are encouraging donations to our Area of Greatest Need toward the purchase of these items. Please note ‘Community Needs List’ when you make your donation online.
