Supply Drive for Emergency Winter Shelters

hands-holding-houseThe Offence, Alpha’s Social Justice action group, is collecting donations for the Vancouver Winter Emergency shelters.   We will be accepting small travel items such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, razors, body wash, toothbrushes and toothpaste. 

An estimated 1700 people are living homeless on the streets of Vancouver.  The four Winter Emergency Shelters are prepared to take in a total of 170 people this winter. We can help them prepare for this year’s influx of shelter users by donating new toiletries.  When you are away on vacation this winter, if possible, please grab the toiletries offered in your hotel room. Everything helps! Drop off donations at the Career Centre, Room 224 or in the school office between now and January 15.
