Why donating funds can be better than donating food

Food Donations

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing emergency around the COVID-19 event, we are UNABLE TO ACCEPT FOOD DONATIONS.

We are able to accept FINANCIAL DONATIONS which enable us to continue to serve our neighbours in Northumberland County.

For more information please contact us.


The Facts

The last thing that Fare Share wants to do is discourage giving of any kind. Traditionally people have given food but there are so many good reasons to donate directly (through CanadaHelps) to Fare Share. Here are a few points:

  • Fare Share can often buy items at a discount that others can't.
  • Fare Share can purchase the items most in need.
  • People who donate will receive a tax receipt (donations over $20 qualify).
  • Our CRA # is: 11906 1844 RR0001.
