Chalmers Community Services Centre Grand Re-Opening!

Save The Date!


It has been a long road but we are very excited to announce that we will open our new doors at 41 Macdonell Street this Friday, August 18th at 10:00 am! 

Volunteer Executive Director, Peter Gill says, “we’re thrilled to co-own space at such a prime, downtown location that we’ve been able to modify to meet our guests’ needs. Our move really marks a new phase in our growth as a charitable organization and our ability to better deliver programs and services to help end hunger and poverty in our community.” 



To Our Volunteers

Thank you for all your hard work! We had so many incredible people who helped clean, assemble, carry, pack, unpack and so much more to get us set up, we can not thank you enough!

Also, thank you, Steve Kilby, for leading the painting parties and Don Peters for your computer network help.  


New Opportunities 

Our new location will allow us to:

  • enhance food pantry service delivery;
    in the future increase the operation of its Café from two to three days a week;
    collaborate with local service providers and offer meeting space and opportunities to connect with guests to both educate and, possibly, deliver available services;
    offer workshops and training to community members who advocate for the right to basic human needs; and
    attract new investors to its microfinance program and increase awareness and use of the program.
