A Product Collection Drive is a great way to rally your friends, family, or coworkers around a cause you all care about. By participating in a product drive, you will make a tangible difference in the lives of vulnerable children, families, and individuals in our community.
There are opportunities to run product drives for a particular initiative, or donate individual items that will make an immediate and powerful difference to our vulnerable neighbours.
Products collected are distributed through our InKind Exchange to front-line agencies and programs, getting the goods to where they are needed most.
A product drive is an excellent way to support United Way and the local agencies we work with, while also connecting with coworkers, customers, and your community. There are a variety of collection drives that will help United Way meet the needs of our program initiatives.

Tools for School ensures all kids have the tools they need to succeed. By hosting a product drive, you’ll reduce one known barrier preventing children and youth from successful learning and participation in school.
