Newark Neighbours appreciatesand values the generosity of our community for your donations which allows us to continue our mission of “Serving our Community with compassion, care and concern.” 

Making this mission a reality would not be possible without all of our volunteers whose time and effort we greatly appreciate.

Thanks go out to the following for their wonderful donations: Niagara-on-the- Lake Lions Club, Budapest Bakery, Syme Jago, Mary Keoch, Tony at Valu-Mart NOTL, Christ Church on McNab Road, Jim Walker, St. Michael’s Catholic School, Niagara Mennonite Church, Niagara Region Employee Appreciation Day and a special thanks to Inniskilin Winery.

Our food bank continually needs to be restocked and the following items are required at this time. Chunky chicken soup, soda crackers, baking needs. Jell-o, jam, cans of Spam, Klik, corned beef, chili and toilet tissue.

We do not accept:, furniture, children’s toys, books, old tools, sports equipment. A list is posted on the outside of our building. Disposing of these items is one the charity’s biggest challenges. The expense to dispose of “do not accept items” is often more than several days of our sales, which means less money is available to purchase food for the food bank.

At this time, the Thrift Store needs jeans, hoodies, work boots, backpacks and sheets.

July is a special month at Newark Neighbours as all of our proceeds from the Thrift Shop will be donated to Red Roof Retreat. Please help us out by donating items we accept and stop in to shop!

Please bring all donations to 310 John St. E. (just off Riverbend Inn driveway). Hours: Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. (closed Saturday and Sunday). Open Sundays from April to October. Call 905-468-3519 or visit www.newarkneighbours.ca.
