We encourage your assistance and support. There are many ways to help us:

  • Volunteer your time to prepare food, serve & clean up at the Dew Drop Inn
  • Become a volunteer driver for various pick ups throughout the city
  • Provide donations of  food and baking.
  • In lieu of flowers, make a financial donation in memory of a loved one or make a donation as a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or Christmas gift to honour someone special.  A tax receipt will be issued.
  • Donate labour and construction time as needed.
  • Organize a food drive.

We value your time, your talent, your energy.

Please note that in order to ensure food safety and comply with regulatory standards for public health, the Dew Drop Inn no longer accepts donations of used clothing or household items.
