A Hand up Christmas Wish List

November 2, 2018 started our Christmas Wish List adoptions!  If you are interested in adopting an individual or family click on the picture below to see our list of friends and their wishes for this Christmas season.  We will be adding to the list every Wednesday and Saturday, as well as marking off who has been adopted each evening.  You need to email us at ctwishlist2018@gmail.com and tell us who you would like to adopt.  Once you receive a confirmation email you can hit the mall (or the internet).  If you don't have time to shop, you can donate online

 (click the donate link at the top of this page) 

and note that it is for the Wish List and our staff will do the shopping for you!

Then drop off your wrapped gift, labelled with your adoptee's name and number to

Bradford Baptist Church @ 3224 10th Side Road, Bradford by THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6TH AT 5:00PM.  

We will be hosting all our friends for a full Christmas dinner on

Sunday, December 9th where they will receive their gift.

Thank You in advance for your generosity and heart to meet needs of those less fortunate this holiday season!

A hand up clothing room

A Hand Up clothing room offers people in need of clothing a place to shop with dignity at no cost. You can find us at 31 Frederick Street, upstairs in the Connection Centre.

We are thankful to our donors for the quality garments they supply us with that allows us to supplement the clothing needs of many people in our community.

We offer clothing to men, women, youth, children and infants. There is something for everyone. 

Often, clients come by just to say hi and catch up on the week. We welcome and encourage this!  There is always fresh coffee, delicious snacks, a warm smile and listening ears


Tuesdays 1-3pm

     Fridays 6-8pm

If you are interested in donating clothing, please be sure that the articles are washed and gently used before dropping them off.

You can deliver clothing during A Hand Up's regular hours at 31 Frederick Street, Tuesdays 1-3pm or Fridays 6-8 or when the Connection Centre is open for other events. 

You can also drop off donations at Bradford Baptist Church (10th side road, just North of the soccer dome) Tuesday - Thursday 9:00am - 5:00pm.

**Please do not leave bags of clothing outside the doors if the building is closed, they end up being ruined. Thank you for your help with this.**


To use the Clothing Room, one simply has to be referred by an individual or agency. 

Currently all of our local churches, local social service agencies (CAS, CAPC, Canadian Mental Health, Early Years, Centre, New Path etc) food bank and Town of Bradford, have referral cards.

You will be able to access the room on a weekly basis with limits of items per family members. Should you need to contact us regarding referring someone to A Hand Up, please call Jodi at: 416-697-5634 or email us at: ahandup@ctministries.ca
