Ways to Support so Community can Thrive
Thrive Community Support Circle is a non-profit charitable organization located in Winnipeg’s west downtown, and serving the community at large in a multi-faceted fashion. Thrive Community Support Circle provides a variety of essential services and programs at 406 Edmonton Street.
We wouldn’t be able to do our work without the generosity of the many individuals and organizations who support us. There are a variety of ways you can help our community thrive — from monetary donations to donated goods, volunteering and hosting projects such as drives for Thrive.
We believe in strengthening, supporting and empowering women, men, children, families and community.
Thrive Resource Centre: we provide free services and programs (in support of physical, social and emotional well-being) to people and families in need.
Thrive Childcare Centre: We provide childcare to support families, and offer drop-in and respite child care for those who are enrolled in programs at the Resource Centre.
Thrive Thrift Shop: We accept donations of gently-used clothing and household items and make them available at an affordable price for our community. We also provide important volunteer and work experiences for those rebuilding their resume. Proceeds from the thrift shop support the activities of the resource centre.

Our Community Impact
Volunteers are essential in our ability to accomplish our mission. We are grateful to the many volunteers who generously give their time to keep Thrive running. There are a number of volunteer positions we are constantly recruiting for, others that are needed on a periodic basis.
FUND A SCHOLARSHIP
Donating to a scholarship fund is a rewarding experience, knowing you’re providing a life-changing opportunity for students in need. Post-secondary education is a vital avenue for improving socio-economic circumstances for students from many different and diverse backgrounds.
100% of all donations goes directly into Thrive’s programs and services so that we can provide free support to those who need it the most.
Please donate today. Thank you!

United Way Winnipeg Day of Caring
The United Way Winnipeg Day of Caring program provides an opportunity for workplaces to volunteer and help a United Way Winnipeg agency partner or non-profit organization complete a project that contributes to local community development, renewal, and pride. Projects may include building something, painting, helping put on an event for children, or cleaning up a community space.
This is a unique year-round opportunity for co-workers and other groups to make a difference in Winnipeggers’ lives by working together on meaningful volunteer projects with local community organizations that focus on:
- Helping kids be all they can be
- Moving people from poverty to possibility
- Encouraging healthy people and strong communities
How it works is that the United Way matches up your volunteer group with a non-profit organization, and together you complete a project that complements your priorities, skills, schedule and available people power. Most projects require between five and 20 volunteers, take an average of four weeks to plan, and take about one-half to one full day to complete.
Past projects have included:
- Helping host a special event like a community barbeque or holiday party
- Working alongside community residents to help beautify a neighbourhood by planting flowers, building a community garden, or participating in a community cleanup
- Collecting donations of much-needed items, including gently used clothing or household goods, hygiene products, or new socks and underwear
- If you have an idea for a project not already on our list, we’ll be happy to explore the need and opportunities
Thrive Community Support Circle receives support from the United Way and has benefited from the Day of Caring initiatives and we encourage organizations and businesses to consider signing up. A Day of Caring is an opportunity to accomplish tasks beyond what your budget and resources may allow. It’s also a good way to put your work and your clients’ needs at the forefront of Winnipeggers’ minds.To find out more about United Way Winnipeg Day of Caring opportunities email [email protected]
