What types of donations are needed?
Women in Transition House has been extremely fortunate to have such a generous community supporting our cause. We receive countless phone calls, emails, and Facebook messages asking how people are able to assist us. For those who are interested, there are a variety of ways to support our organization. We keep our website updated as our needs change, and we also post requests for very specific needs on our Facebook page.
Our current wish list:
Packages of socks and underwear (new: women, children)
Large cans of coffee grounds
Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Dollarama, Superstore, Sobeys, Giant Tiger
Towels (bath and hand)
OUR COMMUNITY IS VERY GENEROUS!
Women in Transition House is currently in the process of reorganizing our closets and assessing our current needs. Our clothing closets and storage spaces are filled to capacity. We have lots of hygiene products as well (soap, shampoo, lotion, loofahs, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.). Thank you! We sincerely appreciate the community’s ongoing generosity. As we have specific needs, we will update our website and put requests on our Facebook page.
Quite often we receive phone calls from individuals in our community who generously offer to donate larger furniture items (kitchen table & chairs, couches, beds, dressers, etc.) to our residents. In many cases we are unable to accept these generous offers because we do not have a space large enough to store these items until the ladies move out and set up their own spaces. Our organization is looking to see if any businesses or individuals are interested in helping us solve this dilemma. If you have space to store larger items and are willing to assist us, please call 457-2770.
Christmas Sponsorship Program
Every Christmas our organization provides gifts for the women and children who were with us during the past year. We have been blessed with the community's assistance to make this program a success! There are several ways to help.
Sponsor a FamilY
This consists of providing Christmas gifts for a mother and at least one child. We typically have families of a Mom and 1, 2, 3, or 4 children. If you and your family or business are interested in uniting to sponsor a small or large family, please contact us by the end of November.
Sponsor a Woman
This consists of providing Christmas gifts for one person.
Sponsor the House
We have been fortunate to have families and companies sponsor the house the last few years.
