Donate from our Wishlist

Do you LOVE the idea of donating items to our food bank market, but simply don't have the time?

Why not order items from our Amazon Wishlist and have them shipped directly to us? Always up to date with the items people are looking for when they visit The Compass.

You can also order on (however will need to add The Compass address for delivery when you check out: 310 Lakeshore Road West, Mississauga ON L5H 1G8).

Thank you for your support!

Most important though is that together we create a community where we all have a place to belong.

Our AGM is coming up later this month, so please feel free to come along if you'd like to learn more.

What Clients & Volunteers Say

Thank you to all the volunteers and staff. You do a wonderful job in helping anyone in our community who truly struggles.

This is an absolutely incredible team!! The service they provide is so necessary, and definitely helps the community run smoother.

My 5 years as a volunteer with the Compass have been some of my happiest. I feel very privileged that in my role here, I have been allowed to get to know so many wonderful people. There are huge rewards too. The sense of fulfillment is amazing and the warmth and gratitude of the clients is priceless.

The kindest group of people you could ever meet volunteer at The Compass.

Most helpful community and outreach centre I had ever experienced.

Staff are amazing! They make you feel like a normal person and not someone who is struggling to get by. The staff make this place!
