Volunteers are really making a difference in helping those who are in need. We are talking homeless people, poor, sick, disabled, children without parents…, the list is endless, so each volunteer, each day and each hour they give and provide the service, really helps those people and the cities to stay cleaner and a better place to live in.
The West Central Women's Resource Centre is putting a call out for donations of hygiene items. A West End resource centre said it’s running low on supplies that help its clients live a dignified life.
The West Central Women’s Resource Centre is asking the community for donations of hygiene products. It needs, among other things, toothpaste, soap, razors, pads, and tampons.
Staff said full-sized shampoo and conditioner bottles are a top priority and can have a big impact on someone’s life.
More information can be acquired at the centre’s page:
Unused hygiene products or cash donations can be dropped off at the centre at 640 Ellice Avenue.
Winnipeggers volunteer every day in many areas and on all possible levels. Especially big impact make groups of volunteers that join the movement.
Another great organization in Winnipeg that works to help women in need is a Siloam Mission.
Siloam Mission is expanding — and the organization is creating a women-only space in its new building that’s currently under construction. The shelter has 110 beds in the existing facility, but more are coming to the new centre, which will also feature a separate entrance solely for women.
An organization working to end homelessness in the city released a report about homeless people population in Winnipeg. The report compiled results of 406 interviews conducted between July and October of 2018 at emergency shelters and community agencies that serve people who are homeless.
