Since 2012, the City of Edmonton has supported the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region as its corporate charity of choice. As part of the employee experience at the City, supporting United Way's programs helps build stronger neighbourhoods and communities in Edmonton, which helps to build a stronger city overall.
Coats for Kids and Families
Many local families simply don’t have the means to purchase the clothing needed to stay warm during Alberta’s harsh winters. The United Way accepts donations of new or gently used winter wear for the Coats for Kids and Families program. Accepted donation items include winter jackets, snow pants toques, mitts, scarves, winter and work boots. Drop off new or gently used donation items at any of the following Drop Off Locations.
