Mission Statement; Edmonton Women's Shelter Ltd. exists to further non-violent relationships and environments for women with or without children. Edmonton Women's Shelter Ltd. (EWS), most commonly known as WIN House, is a non-profit agency.
They have 3 shelters. They accept Personal Items (Women & Children clothing, etc), Toiletries, Household Items (New and Gently Used), financial contributions.
A few times my parents have had an excessive amount of vegetables grow in their garden and they have donated these vegetables to WIN house, and these were graciously accepted.
WIN (Women in Need) used to also have a store, not sure if they do anymore. In northeast Edmonton. (Fort Road)

There are many smaller, ‘unknown’ organizations that need help. Doesn’t have to be one that’s phoning, knocking on your door, advertising on T.V. or sending you stuff in the mail. You just have to search around in your city.
