Important Update

An important update from Rev. David Allen, Chair of Windermere Church Council, and farewell letter from Stone Soup Network Founder, Rev. Alexa Gilmour.

What can you offer?

Our contributors are finding amazing ways to help. Whatever you offer your clients and customers, we can find matches for among neighbours in need. Our current contributors include:

  • Clothing Shops
  • Hair, Beauty services and suppliers
  • Mechanics and Bike Shops
  • Daycares and Children’s Camps
  • Dance, Music, and Art Classes
  • Restaurants, Coffee Shops
  • Grocery Stores and Pharmacies
  • Toy and Book Stores
  • Financial and Health Services
  • Kitchen and Household Supplies

Got something you’d like to share, let us know at Together we can build more just, equitable, and sustainable neighbourhoods.

Sorry, at this time we’re not able to accept offers from individuals, only from businesses. We hope to expand our program to include individual offerings in the near future. But, P.S., we’d be happy to talk with you about volunteering, and we also accept financial donations.


Stone Soup Network projects operating in west Toronto and Ottawa need individual volunteers to help recruit contributors, share our story and keep the organizations running. If you are interested in helping in one of these communities, let us know at


We count on the generosity of our donors, as well as grants and sponsors, to do the work we do. Please consider being a one-time or monthly supporter. Click here to donate.

Big thanks to our 2021 Contributors!

Community Counts
Though many partner businesses had to close for a period of time, together provided almost
800 contributor gifts during the pandemic and supported more than a thousand people.
Thank you so much for helping so many during a difficult time!
