Frequently Asked Questions

Our most frequent questions, if you still have something you would like to talk about please contact us.

How can I get involved?
Project Jack & Jill continues to evolve and improve thanks to the efforts of our wonderful volunteers and community members. If you would like to be involved or have a suggestion or an idea that would benefit the Project, we would love to hear from you. Contact Us
What will my donation support?
Cash Donations: We rely on cash donations to pay costs such as storage, dry cleaning, transportation, and other expenses. Cash donations also enable us to purchase items that are rarely donated, such as outfits for students with specific clothing needs. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in the lives of our students.

You can donate online here.

In-Kind Donations: Donations of graduation-appropriate formal wear, dress shoes and accessories for young ladies and men are always needed. We are also in need of items such as hangers, rolling racks for clothes, mirrors, etc.. as well as transportation, dry-cleaning and other services. You can arrange an in-kind donation by using our contact page

Do I have to send in forms to qualify?
Our gifts aren’t hinged on income statements, we just ask for honesty. Please don’t take advantage of the program if you don’t truly need to.

 

Do you provide a tax receipt for cash donations?
While Project Jack & Jill does intend to become a federally registered charity we have a bit of work ahead of us to make that happen. Alas, for the time being, we are unable to provide tax receipts.
I'm not located in Airdrie, can you still help?
While we do look to give Airdrie students priority we certainly will consider students from nearby jurisdictions if we have the means available to help. Feel free to fill out our Jack or Jill form and we will get back to you.
How can I donate clothing?

Thank you so much for thinking of us and reaching out to contribute, generous people like yourself are who make this program happen!

We accept items year round and we’ve developed a partnership with Stephen Cleaners. They are able to accept donations of suits & dresses along with other needed items and accessories such as shoes, jewelry, ties, belts & dress shirts at their store in Coopers Town Promenade in Airdrie – just let them know your items are for Project Jack & Jill.

If you’re in the Calgary area the Stephen Cleaners locations in Calgary can also accept donations – once again just explain your items are for Project Jack & Jill via the Airdrie Stephen Cleaners storefront. They will accept the items and connect with us when they are ready for pick up.

If you have additional questions that have not been answered here please use the contact page and we will get in touch with y ou as soon as possible

Are you inclusive of 2SLGBTQIA+ people ?

At Jack and Jill we welcome graduates of every gender. Clothing does not have a gender and we encourage you to pick formal wear that suits you.
