#BundleUpYEG is a volunteer-run, annual winter clothing drive for homeless shelters and homeless support organizations in Edmonton. Our goal is to keep Edmonton’s homeless community warm by making the donation process easy and accessible.
How does #BundleUpYEG work? It’s simple: you pack the clothing donations and the #BundleUpYEG team picks them up to deliver to shelters, free of charge. You can also drop off your donations to several collection boxes set up across the city.
This campaign is run on volunteer time and volunteer funds. All clothing donations that are collected are physically walked into shelters’ doors by the #BundleUpYEG team. The 2018 campaign operated from Nov. 17 to Dec. 17 and broke all records! In just 31 days, the 20-person volunteer team collected and delivered more than 1,500 bags of warm clothing exceeding the initial goal of 1,300 bags!
Thanks to the generosity of Edmontonians and local partners over the years, #BundleUpYEG has supplied 3,694 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 Community Services and The Mustard Seed (Edmonton chapter).
We absolutely could not do this without our community of supporters behind us.
Thank you to everyone who has donated and continued to support #BundleUpYEG. You are the super heroes of Edmonton.
