To Donate Items to ICCS

We are so grateful to our donors, and to the generosity that prompts them to share monetary and in kind gifts with others in our community.  As we are limited in our storage space and ability to process donated items, can’t accept all gifts, but please feel free to reach out and ask what is needed at this time.   If we can’t accept your donation right now, we will connect you to other organizations in the community that work very well with ICCS to ensure that our clients can get access to the items that they need, when they need them!

Below is a list of some items that we are currently accepting, as well as how to connect with us regarding these items. This list will be updated frequently as our needs change, so please check back often.

For more information, please call our head office at 778-441-4227, ext. 114 to ask what current needs are, or to arrange drop off at our #3-1200 Princess Royal Ave office location.
