We believe that giving is better than getting but finding time to give towards volunteering can be tricky. We get it. Which is why for this month’s Hedkandi Loves Local feature, we wanted to highlight some easy ways to support local causes we love.

Women In Need Society

Women in Need Society (WINS) is an award winning not-for-profit organization and Calgary based shopping alternative investing in the social wellbeing of community. Operating four destination thrift stores and six Family Resource Centres their businesses help vulnerable women and their families live better lives.

From November 2nd to November 14th we will be accepting donations of clothing, accessories, linens and small household goods at all three of our Hedkandi locations. (click here to see a full list of items WINS accepts).

Shopboys is a group of local shops who always work hard at supporting change within YYC. They believe that one small business can change a community and help make a better, more vibrant city.

Here at Hedkandi we will be selling their 2016 calendar for $25, in support of aspiring women entrepreneurs through the women’s venture program run by Calgary not-for-profit Momentum. Click their logo below to visit their website.
