Support for families who are new to Canada

uploaded photo for registry

Welcome to our SoKind registry! This website compiles our list of items that would be helpful to support families who are new to Canada. We will update this list as needs arise so please check in regularly.

We are not able to store and sort items beyond what is listed, so please visit Habitat for Humanity ReStores if you have more items to donate.

If you would like to 'claim' a gift, click on the 'Give this gift' button so the gift will be claimed in your name, and so that we will not receive any duplicates. Registry items can be dropped off at the NCC office (221 Romaine Street, Peterborough, K9J 2C3) between 10am and 4pm, Mondays to Fridays.

Thank you for welcoming our newest residents to Canada with your generosity and kindness!

A client started learning English and she needs to work on a laptop as well as a part of her learning process.

She does not have any special requests about the laptop. She only needs one that she can work on. Thank you!
