“Our mission is to gather and provide resources for international relief”

  • Compassionate Resource Warehouse is closed for the Christmas holidays. We will open again for "donations by appointment" in January. Just a reminder that the five day Covid quarantine for incoming goods will still be in effect. 2020 was a challenging year for CRW. We celebrated our 500th container in early March and kicked off 501, then full stop. However, CRW is creative and flexible. We have devised packing, crating and loading and still follow Covid safe restrictions. We were able to send out 12 containers in 2020. A very special thanks to our CRW team for adapting to much smaller teams. We all miss the fluid warm environment we had before March. Thank you to our donors and partners who continue to give us such precious products-- again in a safe way. What a year of adaptations for all of us. We look forward to a new year, with new shipments and projects. The need has grown around the world and CRW is very honoured to be able to share what we have, as we can, and when we can.

  • Dave Peacock has put together an album of pictures of the unloading and distribution of goods sent to the Bearing Fruits Organization in Ghana which was loaded in Dec 2019 and arrived in April 2020. The album can be found here.
