Dilly Dally Fundraising

Giving back to community causes has always been an important part of Dilly Dally. We've donated gift cards to school fundraisers and community events to support our neighbours ever since we opened our doors in 2010.

But with your help, we've been able to expand our contributions to include monetary donations to causes that mean so much to us and our community. We can't express how grateful we are to be able to donate to such meaningful non profits.

When you shop at Dilly Dally, these are some of the causes you are contributing to:
