All funds raised through ‘Currency for Kids’ support our Mental Health and Wellness programs for children and youth. Donate your foreign currency to help re-write a future.
Donations of currency are repatriated from countries all around the world. After being converted to Canadian currency, your donation is then used to support Mental Health programs for children and youth living in vulnerable situations.
How to support Currency for Kids
It’s easy to support the program as an individual, business or with a group of volunteers. Look in your own home or business and collect foreign currency. Help grow the program by engaging a service club, church group, school or through an employee drive.
Mail your donations to the Durham Children’s Aid Foundation at 1320 Airport Blvd, Oshawa, ON L1J 0C6. Don’t worry about using the postal system, the currency has no value until it is repatriated. For larger quantities, please contact our office at 905-433-1551, to make arrangements for a drop off at our facility.
DCAF accepts eTransfers for donations as well. Send your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org .
