Christmas wish List 2019

Once again, A Hand Up Clothing Room will seek to help those less fortunate in our Bradford Community by providing Christmas gifts and a family Christmas Dinner.  Our friends can register throughout the month of November for their wish, and then we will share the updated list weekly with all of you who want to help bless others this holiday season.

The process is simple.  Click on the picture below to get the most up-to-date wishlist.  Choose an individual(s) you'd like to adopt, then send us an email to

to make sure that we mark them as "adopted" and we don't duplicate.  Then go shopping! If you don't have time to shop you can just go to our "Donate" page (in the menu above) and donate online, specifying it's for the WishList and we will do the shopping for you!

Once you've purchased your gifts, wrap them and drop them off at Bradford Baptist Church (3224 10th Sideroad) before Thursday, December 5th at 5:00pm.  Please make sure you put their name AND number on the gift so we can be sure everyone gets the right one.

A hand up clothing room


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

We do NOT accept toys, books or household items, we are not equipped for those, clothes, shoes and bedding only.  Please see the Resource Thrift store, or other thrift stores for those donations. 

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. 

If you are unable during open hours, you can also drop off donations at Bradford Baptist Church (10th side road, just North of the soccer dome) but please contact us first as this is only for extenuating circumstances, either through our Facebook page or at 416-697-0147.  

BBC is open 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 Patti at: 416-697-0147 or email us at:
