CampaignsWe ship about 4 times each year, to several communities. Our next shipping deadline is January 30th, 2017. Items from that shipment will go to communities in Nunavut.
Note: If additional shipping opportunities arise (free or very low cost shipping), we also send out items between our major shipments.
Our current campaign does not have a particular theme. Any items from our Guidelines page are accepted. Socks are in high demand and worsted weight socks in a variety of sizes are especially appreciated.
These items will be sent to the First Nations community and distributed through the local health care centre and community outreach centre.
Special Message: Fur Coats
In Fall 2014, we received a new request for old fur coats to be repurposed into clothing in the Arctic. We have already sent one box of coats up to Igloolik and they have been deconstructed and turned into warm clothing. So if you have an old fur coat gathering dust in the closet we would love to have it.
Since its inception, the Warm Hands
Network has sent over 5000 new hand-knit and crocheted
hats, mittens, socks, sweaters, neck-warmers and
blankets to remote Canadian communities.
