It Takes a Village Community Outreach and Advocacy is a non-profit that delivers support directly to those who need it most in HRM.

We’ve been helping the most marginalized in our community for years, using donations to provide much needed personal care, clothing and hygiene products to people in need. Plus backpacks with school supplies and food items for families, and even laptops seniors, in need.

We’re run by a dedicated board and team of volunteers determined to make our communities stronger by supporting those who need it most.

Seniors Emergency Kits Fundraiser

We’re collecting donations to give emergency kits to our community seniors, as they’re particularly vulnerable during power outages.

To help keep them safe and warm while they weather the storms.

We’ll be distributing these much needed kits at Cole Harbour Place on March 30th from 10am-1pm.

And we’ll be giving out Covid Self-tests Kits as well!

If you’d like to send a monetary donation, we will purchase emergency kit essentials on your behalf.

Kindly send EFT donations to: ittakesavillagecoa@gmail.com
