Get Involved

Emmanuel Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals and groups for much of what we do each year. The work of Emmanuel Foundation would not be able to continue without the giving of time, energy and finances.

We are always looking for help!

Below are some of the areas with which we are always looking for support. If you have interest in getting involved in any of the areas mentioned below, please contact us through the “Contact Us” page. As well, if you have other ideas for ways you want to get involved that are not listed below, please reach out to us.

Finding Playgrounds suitable to send overseas. If you know a playground being torn down we would love to hear about it so we can contact the owner and see if it would be possible to ‘Play It Forward’ as apposed to having it sent to the landfill.

Finding/Sourcing Items to be sent in Container Projects. Items that are always in demand are

  • Medical supplies
  • Educational supplies
  • Shoes, sporting goods, tools
  • Sewing Machines
  • Collecting and Delivering items. We always need people who are willing to travel around Edmonton and surrounding areas to pick up items that have been donated. Access to a truck (the bigger the better!) is always a great thing, but not necessary!

Group of Volunteers

Volunteer sorting Clothes

We are always looking for help!

Sorting items and general help around the warehouse. Items to sort include clothing, medical supplies, books etc. Each week a group of people come together to sort through items and ensure all items being shipped are quality items that communicate respect for the people receiving them.

Identifying and Organizing Medical items. Emmanuel Foundation often has medical equipment that is donated and is in need of trained medical personel to help identify and organize these items. If you are a nurse, doctor or have had experience working with medical equipment and were willing to assist in identifying and organizing medical equipment we would love to hear from you!

Donating and Fundraising. Emmanuel Foundation relies on the generosity of people to cover its annual expenses. If you would consider helping Emmanuel Fpundation through a financial contribution it goes a long way to supporting the projects we do each year. Or if you have an idea for or would like to host a fundraiser for Emmanuel Foundation, we would be grateful!

***A special need we have currently is for a permanent facility for our warehouse. We are grateful that we currently have a warehouse location out of which to work. However, we are on a 30 day notice period at this warehouse and will ultimately need to move locations. We are looking for a more permanent location to either move into or build a warehouse facility on that will allow Emmanuel Foundation to continue operations into the future. If you have ideas for a permanent facility, please reach out to us.
