Welcome to Chalmers Community Services Centre

Chalmers Community Services Centre is a not for profit organization that provides emergency food, clothing and support without prejudice to the members of our community.

We provide those in need with a safe, non-judgmental environment where they have access to food and clothing, are able to meet new people, and receive the support they need to take their next steps forward.

  • We welcome anyone who is unemployed, underemployed, between jobs, or waiting for compensation.
  • We do not use means testing. That means the people who use our service never have to prove they require help.
  • Chalmers is a violence and judgment-free center. We offer a safe and comforting place for people who have run out of options.

PC Points Fundraising

PC Points to support

Chalmers Community Services Centre (CCSC)

Did you know….

CCSC has been supported by Zehrs cash register tapes every year, worth over $2800!

Loblaws Companies Limited (Zehrs) no longer runs the cash register tape programme?

You can still support Chalmers while shopping at Zehrs & No Frills?

Chalmers original mandate was to serve guests who were single and lived downtown.  We now serve families both downtown and at Three Willows and our average monthly grocery expenditure is over $6000!

Chalmers would like to set January 2015 as our PC points for CCSC month.  Please think of adding a grocery card to your order.

PC points can be redeemed for grocery cards but it can be a bit tricky as they have to be part of your order. They cannot be purchased separately using PC points.

Find out how many points you have before checking out (either online or from the cashier)  If you have 20,000 points add a $20 gift card to that order and your points will cover it.  If you have 30,000 you can add $30.  You can go up in increments of 10,000.  You must have a minimum of 20,000 to use the points.  You cannot use them on an order with a total of less than $20.  (For example you cannot buy a pack of gum, add a gift card and pay with points).


Contributing gift cards in January will allow us to all purchase our yummy Christmas treats and then help CCSC through the winter months!

Donate a Car Canada

We Accept Vehicle Donations!

Just in case some of you weren’t aware, CCSC partnered with Donate A Car Canada as another way to receive donations! From our end, we do nothing but receive donation cheques from them. Donors across Canada have the opportunity to donate their vehicles through this program and Donate A Car Canada directs the proceeds to us.

The vehicle donor gets free towing & a tax deductible receipt and we get the money from the sale of the vehicle.

You can donate easily online or call to donate.

So tell your friends, tell our donors, share the link or donate your very own vehicle!
