What We Do

The Canadian Community Support Foundation provides a safety net for those at risk of falling through the cracks.  In addition to our own efforts to feed and clothe Canadians in need, we provide assistance to existing charities within our community.

United Way/Centraide – CCSF proudly supports the United Way and its Member Organizations in communities across Ontario through financial contributions.

Food and Clothing Donations – CCSF donates food to local charities that directly feed those in need. We also donate hundreds of pounds of winter clothing to struggling individuals and families in Ontario and Quebec.

Community Fund – CCSF also manages a Community Fund that gives United Way Member Organizations the opportunity to apply for $1000 one-time grants to help organizations or individuals that they feel need immediate support.

Food and Clothing Drives – One of CCSF’s mandates is to develop innovative strategies that break the cycle of poverty. While integrated solutions do eventually work their way through a community, we understand that people often have immediate and urgent needs as well. Food bank use in Canada is at a record high, and local food/clothing banks struggle to keep up. CCSF organizes several food and clothing drives throughout the year. We raise large amounts of stock which helps to fill the shelves at food and clothing banks across Ontario & Quebec.

Community Inspiration Award – We believe in recognizing the efforts of our community leaders, and we especially love to see children involved in community building. To celebrate the contribution kids make, we present Community Inspiration Awards to children under 10 that show exemplary community spirit. The award winner receives a certificate, gift card, and t-shirt, and also gets to present a $4000 cheque to their favourite charity in a special ceremony.

Donate Info

It’s really easy to get involved in our Clothing Donation Program, and it’s at no cost to you! All we need is your permission to place a clothing bin on your property. Our clothing collection partner ensures the bins are kept spotlessly clean and are collected regularly. They assume all costs and responsibility for bin maintenance and each bin is fully insured.
