As part of their humanitarian efforts, the Port Elgin Missionary Church has partnered with the Ukrainian community in providing a donation depot weekends in Saugeen Shores.

In a recent submission to Saugeen Shores Hub, the depot is located at 659 Gustavus Street, behind the former Port Elgin arena, and donations will be accepted Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.

Signage will be visible during operating hours and only items listed below will be accepted. Organizers ask that people refrain from dropping off items at the Missionary Church's main building and to only drop items off during operating hours.

New and unused items being accepted are:

Tylenol, Advil, Aleve and Aspirin
Antacids and anti-nauseants
PPE (gloves, masks and gowns)
