Hands Up Canada was created to help Canadians in need, the young, the elderly, those at risk. Our focus is on working with communities to provide education, food, shelter and social programmes.

Some of our recent projects:

  • Masks for Front Line Workers & People at Risk during Covid-19 we are making masks to donate to front line workers and those at risk at hospitals, seniors, volunteers at food banks.
  • Back-to-School Backpacks for kids in Toronto shelters.
  • Summer Learning Backpacks to Nunavut for young children in northern Canada to get them ready for success in school in the fall.
  • Emergency Backpacks of basic necessities and clothes for women and young children who find themselves living in a shelter in Toronto without anything except the clothes on their back.
  • Emergency Diaper Bags for pregnant and new moms living in shelters. Often it is when a women is bringing a child into the world that she makes the difficult decision to flee an abusive relationship.  We offer diaper bags with a newborn layette to help her care for her newborn infant.
  • Christmas Gift Envelopes for students in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories.  These small gifts are often the only ones these children will receive for Christmas.
  • Food and Supplies to shelters and food banks in Canada.  Poverty knows no geographic boundaries.  We support food banks and soup kitchens anywhere in Canada that there is a need.
  • Supplies to Elders living in remote parts of Canada to support projects that bring elders and students together to teach and pass on new and traditional skills.
