Sometimes, women arrive at Optimism Place without basic necessities.
With your help we can provide women the small things that restore their dignity while they stay with us and begin to heal.
Donations can be dropped off Monday – Friday, 9 am – 12 noon, but please call ahead to arrange your delivery.
519-271-5310 ext. 131. Also, we are most grateful for your donations, but please no drop-offs on weekends.
Thank you for your generosity!
