You Can Help


Anawim’s main support comes from individual donors. We are also very grateful for the support of the United Way of Greater Victoria, the Victoria Foundation, and the social service clubs and churches who support us. While the gift of grants from these organizations is invaluable, so to are the individual donations from people like you who help us keep food on the plates, hot water for showers, and a warm welcome for Victoria’s neediest people.

Regular donations of goods from merchants include food, household supplies, etc. Professional services rendered by individuals and the participation of volunteers in various programs also contribute to the welfare of our Society.

Please note that having a large walk-in-refrigerator and large freezers, we are able to accept donations of perishable as well as non-perishable food items. Dry food goods as well as maintenance supplies are also gratefully accepted.
