While International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women’s achievements it’s also an opportunity to acknowledge there’s still so much to be done to achieve gender equality. Women who experience violence, homelessness, addictions and poverty are at even more of a disadvantage, so this International Women’s Day we’d like to do a small thing to help these women in our neighbourhood.
March 8th through 15th we’ll be accepting donations of the following items for the WISH Drop-in Centre Society:
NEW: menstrual pads & tampons / travel-sized toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion) / toothbrushes / toothpaste / deodorant / razors / hair accessories / makeup
NEW / GENTLY USED: bath towels / blankets / raincoats / umbrellas / clothing / reading glasses / purses
Cash donations also gratefully accepted in lieu of goods. Will be used to purchase items from above list.
As thanks for your donation, we’ll give you a beer!
