Why is your help needed and what will the donations be used for?

There has been an increase in violent events during the COVID-19 pandemic. Transition houses and anti-violence organizations have struggled during this time not only because of the increased need, but also a decrease in available resources. The CWI was formed to help support these organizations so that they could adequately help women and those experiencing violence. The items donated through this event will be distributed among the following organizations based on their expressed needs.

Shelters benefitting from this item drive include:

  • Turning point recovery 
  • Covenant House 
  • Harmony House 
  • Talitha Koumb Society 
  • YWCA  Vancouver 
  • Chrysalis society 
  • Atira Women’s resource centre 
  • Vancouver rape relief & women’s shelter 
  • WISH drop-in centre and society
