Item Donations: Meeting Practical Needs

Support people in need in practical ways by donating household goods, furniture, and seasonal items. The list below will be updated regularly to reflect the most current needs for supporting newcomers to Canada, refugees, and local partners through First Alliance Church.

  • To donate items, please arrange for drop-off at FAC Deerfoot; we’re unable to pick up donations.
  • We are now accepting furniture donations, pending our available storage space.
  • To support refugees and asylum seekers coming to Calgary, please get in touch with Michelle Peters.

If you’d like to give a monetary donation to support newcomers and refugees, please designate your financial gift to the “Care Fund”.
