Unique Drive-Thru Donation Drive in Support of Boyle Street Community Services


Looking to make a difference during COVID-19 without leaving your car? Join On Side Restoration and co-hosting companies for a one of a kind donation drive by to benefit Boyle Street Community Services, taking place on Saturday, October 3rd between 11am and 3pm. Drop by with some gear to enjoy a drive-by BBQ, a few games, giveaways, and a chance to win prizes.

Lisa Nykoluk, Manager, Business Development stated, “We had the pleasure to work closely with Boyle Street Community Services this summer after they unfortunately incurred a basement flood at their facility. Given their tireless hours in giving back to the community, fostering a way for the organization to gain something from this challenging time was the least that we could do. Our industry restoration partners and crew were all eager to make a difference, especially right now due to the pressure of COVID-19 on businesses and organization alike.”

Boyle Street Community Services is most in need of hygiene products and warmth for their clients. Hygiene items include: all small or travel sizes are requested for shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, liquid body wash (not bar soap) deodorant, and disposable shavers. For warmth they’re looking to receive winter coats and sweatpants (new and used), socks, gloves, mitts, and toques (new). Important note: no red coloured garments please.

We want to thank and acknowledge the support and co-hosting contributions by our industry partners and companies: CEP Forensic, CRDN, Envirospec Solutions Inc., Hazmasters, Blue Goose Edmonton Pond, and Skyline QS Consultants Ltd.


Boyle Street Community Services has been working in the inner city of Edmonton since 1971 to serve, support, and empower people to take control of their lives and escape the cycle of poverty and homelessness. In 1976, the organization became a registered charity under the name Boyle Street Service Society. The organization offers over 40 programs and services in 9 locations to 650 deserving families.
