Wish Lists

Thank you to all of our donors!

Making a financial donation to Fife House ensures that services and programming continue for our more than 600 residents and clients.

If you would like to consider making a gift of an item or service, or direct your gift to a specific need, the following provides a list of possibilities and opportunities for you to consider.

Agency Wide

Food: Last year more than 8,000 communal meals were provided to residents and clients in our programs. Offsetting costs through donations of non-perishable food items is important to maintain this level of service. You can help with donations of the following:

Canned goods
• vegetables/beans, pasta sauce, gravy, soup, fruit, tuna, salmon)
Dry goods
• flour, oats, pasta, rice, cookie/brownie/cake mix, pancake mix, soup stock
• BBQ sauce, honey, jam, sugar, salt, pepper, spices, ketchup, mustard, vinegar, coffeemate, mayonnaise,

Social/recreational: One of our greatest challenges is providing residents/clients with opportunities to involve themselves in activities outside of our buildings. This helps reduce feelings of marginalization, isolation and depression. Outings are extremely popular, but often beyond the means of our clients or Fife House. You can help by providing:

Tickets to sporting and cultural events;
Admission to art galleries, museums, attractions, Toronto Zoo, etc.
