GBCSC Wish List
The Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre is always grateful for the generosity of our community. While the need for financial support is always strong, there are a number of other way you can contribute to helping improve local cancer support. If you are able to donate any of the following items, we’ll make sure they go to very good use here at the centre.
Gift cards to just about any business are welcome gifts at the centre. Many are distributed in times of need to members burdened with the tremendous financial strain of cancer treatment. Treatment often leaves patients unable to work for a period of time, and your gift can help with the everyday costs of items that may sometimes be taken for granted. In high demand are gift cards to Walmart, any local grocery store, home improvement stores, amazon, as well as gas cards.
Books and Puzzles
We have a growing library of reading material available for members to borrow and read at their leisure. In addition to a wealth of information resources on cancer, treatment, resources, and more, our collection or previously loved novels provides a nice opportunity for members to escape into a fictitious world. Books and puzzles are available for loan to members of the centre upon request.
Does anything beat a fresh cup of coffee? How about crackers or bread sticks with your bowl of soup? Non-perishable pantry items are great to have on hand at the centre to help make our members feel more at home. Items like coffee, coffee filters, sugar, individually packaged cookies and snacks, and other such items are welcomed donations to the centre’s kitchen. With the exception of those items containing nut allergens, we are happy to accept almost any such donations.
The Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre prides itself on offering meaningful support to those who are impacted by cancer. This can’t be done without the financial support of our community. The costs of operating our building, purchasing materials, paying staff, and bringing on board qualified program facilitators are all necessary expenses that help us to deliver on our mission. By converting your one-time donation to a recurring gift, you can also help to ensure the sustainability of cancer support in our region while taking a planned approach to maximizing your annual income tax return. Online donations can be made here at any time
We strive to ensure that in every decision we make, our members are at the forefront. In reality, there are administrative expenses that every organization is faced with, and that allow us to provide valuable services to our members. But, by donating items like unused stationary, stamps, and other office supplies, you can help us to free up more of our budget for member programs and services.
