Since 1946, CLWR has sent aid to people experiencing need around the world. CLWR’s We Care program continues to ship thousands of urgently needed supplies every year through the donations of dedicated congregations, service groups and individuals like you. Your gifts of love are received by people affected by poverty or displaced by war, hunger or natural disaster, and are vital to the operation of hospitals, schools, refugee camps and development programs. Your support changes lives.

Shipping Labels & Transportation
Thanks to the generosity of our national transport sponsors, supporters of the We Care program can deliver their donations free of charge to our Winnipeg warehouse.
After completing your project, pack the items in a sturdy box (please, no bags) and attach a CLWR shipping label.
Ship boxes free of charge to our Winnipeg warehouse by dropping them off at any Home Hardware store. Please contact us about using regional carriers such as Arnold Bros. Transport Ltd.
Our suggested donation for each bag, tag, bucket and t-shirt is $5. This will help us cover the cost of shipping a container filled with We Care kits and quilts to its destination. Send donations for bags, tags, t-shirts and buckets to our head office. Credit card donations can be taken over the phone.
We are grateful to each of our transportation partners for their support of our We Care program!

Where kits go
From schools to hospitals, big cities to remote villages, refugee camps to areas affected by disasters, CLWR’s humanitarian relief shipments support the diverse and longstanding work of our international partners.
The first stop for most donations is CLWR’s Winnipeg warehouse where kits, quilts and other materials are sorted and checked by volunteers and packaged for international distribution. Most goods are compressed into bales so that each shipment can contain the maximum quantity of materials.
