What charities truly need

Many of us give to charities, especially during the holidays. Have you ever wondered what charities truly need?

The most difficult thing in the street is the eyes of others. We need powerful reminders of the human story behind homelessness.

Most people never connect food insecurity with sanitary product insecurity, Buy sanitary pads and tampons and donate them to a homeless shelter. Just do it. For example, some women and girls in Nunavut using socks instead of tampons because of high cost. A box of tampons can cost $15 or more, maxi-pads $18 and ultra-thins $25.

Things to donate all year:

  • bladder-control products for elders
  • Deodorant
  • Disposable Shavers
  • Sanitary pads
  • Tissues

When it starts to get chilly out at night it’s time to donate the following items:

  • coats
  • blankets
  • hats
  • gloves
  • scarves
