#bundleupyeg is a volunteer-run, annual winter clothing drive for homeless shelters and homeless support organizations in Edmonton, Alberta. Operated by Edmontonians Jasmine Topham and her husband Ryan Topham, the goal of #bundleupyeg is to keep our local homeless community warm by making the donation process easy and accessible.
How does #bundleupyeg work? It’s simple: you pack the clothing donations and we pick them up to deliver to shelters, free of charge.
This campaign is run on our own time and our own dime. We’re not financially sponsored by the shelters or any organizations. All clothing donations that we collect and receive are physically walked into shelters’ doors by our team.
During our 2017 campaign, our team of 14 volunteers collected and delivered 1,280 bags of clothing to Edmonton homeless shelters in 48 days. Thank you to everyone who supported us and donated your clothing to us!
Thanks to the generosity of Edmontonians and our local partners, to date, #bundleupyeg has supplied 2,180 bags of warm clothing to local homeless organizations since its creation in 2013. Clothing goes to major Edmonton shelters such as The Bissell Centre, Hope Mission, Boyle Street and The Mustard Seed.
Thank you to everyone who has donated and continued to support us. You are the super heroes of Edmonton. See you in November 2018!
