Thank you for supporting the Basic Needs Round-Up!

Calgarians came together to support the Basic Needs Round-Up this summer, collecting hygiene products, baby supplies, bus tickets, grocery store gift cards, cleaning supplies, technology devices, and more for people in need.

From individuals, families, and volunteers who stepped up, to companies that organized their own donation drives, to creative, neighbourhood-wide round-ups, our collective impact was nothing short of incredible.
