We’re less than a month away from hosting our 3rd annual, month long, Sock, Hat & Mitt Drive to benefit the Unemployed Help Centre Coats for Kids program and Street Help. This is our largest event of the year which builds awareness to the needs within the community and empowers residents of Windsor and Essex County to fill that need and help local families. So far in the first two years we have collected and delivered 2820 items.
The Windsor Business Networks month long, Sock, Hat & Mitt project begins on September 30th and runs until October 31st.
We are collecting new or gently used (clean only, please) hats, mittens, scarves, along with coats and NEW socks. We are also accepting personal care and hygiene products like feminine hygiene products, tooth paste, soaps… etc.
This drive allows people to give back to the community while helping others move forward with dignity.
This drive benefits Unemployed Help Centre’s Coats for Kids Program, and Street Help

Street Help Homeless Centre of Windsor is a homeless drop-in centre operated by and for the homeless. We are a leading provider of services for the homeless.
We are here to not only provide the homeless with services to better their own lives, but to give them an opportunity to help others equally in need. Who better to provide others with quality services than the ones who have been there and experienced the same circumstances. The homeless are the experts on what they need. The majority of our volunteers are those we serve – the homeless themselves. The homeless are involved in planning and the operation of our centre.
Street Help has been helping the homeless in the Windsor-Essex County region since 1995
