Who We Help
Each month the EERSS assists countless families and people in need by providing them with basic supplies, household necessities, furniture and support. We help:
  • Victims of fire, disaster and low income families.
  • Poor and isolated communities around Alberta.
  • Organizations, schools, churches, and agencies in and around our community.
    There are many freezing, cold nights in the winter and during these nights it is the homeless people in Edmonton that suffer the most. Volunteers and staff of the EERSS go out on many of these nights to hand out winter clothing and warm blankets to the homeless.

    We have successfully marked many Milestones in our history:
    -We coordinated and assisted in the relief efforts after the Black Friday Tornado in 1987;
    -We sent 8 semi-trailers full of relief supplies for the Manitoba Flood relief in 1997;
    -We aided and supplied relief items for the Pine Lake Tornado disaster in 2000;
    -We started the original "Coats for Kids" campaign;
    -We have aided countless families in apartment and house fires;
    -We collected and distributed over 4000 blankets to the homeless community in 2007.
    -We worked with and helped Homeward Trust to establish Edmonton's first Furniture Bank;
    -In May 2011, the Government of Alberta asked us to coordinate the relief efforts during the Slave Lake Wildfires;
    - We Sent Relief supplies to Calgary to help with the flooding in Southern Alberta in 2013.

    In addition to helping fire and disaster victims, the EERSS also provides countless families of low income and people in need with reasonably priced household items from our Thrift Shoppe. Our prices are affordable for any income.
