For the month of June, every dollar donated to a Canadian charity on Canada Helps gives that charity a chance to win a $20,000 prize sponsored by CanadaHelps!
The $20,000 prize would support our continual efforts to provide a safe place with dedicated care for our youth in our facilities, now available 24 hours daily.

Thank you for considering donating to YESS. To protect our staff, youth, and donors in the current health crisis, we are closed to public in-kind donations and all clothing and household items. We are hopeful that our vendors and business partners will continue to donate food essentials to our kitchen so we can continue to feed our youth during this time.
Donating laptops, PCs, and TVs
Access to proper technology helps our youth on their educational, employment, and personal goals.
Here are some guidelines to help make sure any technology donations suit our youth and their needs.
We can accept
- New laptops/PCs/TVs (receipt required to verify)
- Used laptops/PCs/TVs that are less than a year old (receipt required to verify)
- Please call ahead before donating TVs
Used laptops/PCs/TVs that are over a year old and/or no longer functional come at a cost for us to dispose of responsibly. Thank you for helping us avoid these costs.
Tax receipts can be issued upon request for new items valued at more than $20 with a proof-of-purchase receipt.
Please call us before donating any of these items:
- Sugary snacks (candy, pop, donuts, etc.)
- Exercise equipment and weight benches
- Large appliances
- Ping pong tables
- Pool tables
Any donations that we are not able to use in a timely manner or that are surplus to our needs may be shared with other non-profit organizations in need or used in our fundraising efforts.
