Christine’s Cupboard

At Christine’s Place we want to support our clients in every way we can including both practical and emotional help. We are grateful for donations of the following items. If you are able to help us with new or gently used items, we would appreciate it! Please drop items off during centre hours or call to make arrangements (705)784-0647

One of the many ways we help to encourage and help new mothers and babies is to provide a beautiful layette (gift basket) after the baby is born. Most of the items included in the gift hampers are donated by our supporters. If you have any questions please connect with our Christine’s Cupboard Manager, Ruth Tasker, by contactingthe centre.
