In Addition to our ongoing daily work, the EERSS participates and initiates a
number of other projects that assist our communities..
Blanket Alberta in Warmth Program
One of our annual campaigns is Blanket Alberta in Warmth. We
collect blankets and give these away to those in need. We also share these
blankets with other local organizations that assist crisis victims.
Blanket Donations can be made at our warehouse, located at 10255
104 St, Monday – Friday between 10 and 3; any Fire Hall or any of the Supercuts
locations in Edmonton, Sherwood Park or Fort Saskatchewan.
every year is to collect 5,000 blankets. To help reach our goal we are always
looking for places that will allow us to put a blanket donation box in their
place of business. This would either be for employees to donate and/or for the
general public. These boxes are emptied as frequently as is needed. The
Blanket Alberta in Warmth campaign begins in October of each year.
These blankets are freely given to those in need.
Another annual event is our "Toys and Trimmings" campaign.
Each year Toys and Christmas decorations and trimmings are collected and distributed
to families that do not qualify for other Christmas programs.
