Humankind: Gifts That Matter is a gift shop with a difference! It’s a social enterprise that sells new items, as well as donated original artwork and handmade artisan creations, including an eclectic mix of paintings, crochet and handknit clothing and blankets, graphic t-shirts, religious items, toys, handmade soaps and lots more.

Please note, Humankind is not registered as a thrift store and we are not permitted to sell any used items in the store.

The store operates with the support of our generous volunteers and donors.

All Humankind store profits support De Mazenod Door Outreach, a registered charity (charitable registration no. 753334911RR0001) that provides food for the hungry and drink for the thirsty, 365 days a year. Find out more about the important work we do and how you can help. 

Thank you for your support of our store, and for helping to feed people in need in Hamilton’s inner city.

Buy a gift, feed a community!
