Each year, friends, families, and many others donate goods to our ministry. These goods really do help us in many ways. Food items help by reducing our groceries expenses, and equipment donations allow us to acquire additional or replace worn out equipment here. All of these things help us towards our mission goals.
For those in the U.S., there are restrictions on how much and what, we can receive due to customs and the border crossing.
Please don’t send us used clothing.

If you have a friend or relative currently serving at Northern Youth Programs, you can send them a gift box. Canadian customs restricts the value of what can be sent from one person in the US to a person in Canada to $50.00. You may have friends and family help you send gift boxes by having them send a box to the same person, or you can send a box to individual family members of the same family. As long as each box value is not more than $50.00.
A Personal Gift Box form needs to be filled out and attached securely to each gift box. You can download and print below.
