Parkdale Parent's Primary Prevention Program
Everyone deserves to be warm this winter, especially young families who are new to Canada
Being a new mom can be one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Being a new mom, in a new country with a much colder climate is another story entirely. That’s why the Parkdale Parents Primary Prevention Program (5Ps) is stepping up to help young families and new moms prepare for the winter ahead.
Everyone deserves to be warm in the winter, but there is a huge population in our city that doesn’t have the means or the resources to make that happen. The 5Ps program is determined to provide the necessary support to families living on low or no income, newer families, homeless or under-housed parents, lone-parent families, parents facing mental health and/or substance use challenges, as well as youths who are parenting.
How you can help
With your help we can make sure all these young families have the winter essentials they need. You can pool funds which will go towards purchasing their top in-need winter gear or register a pick up and we’ll swing by to collect your slightly used infant winter gear. Based on the number of families currently accessing the program, they need fifty (yes 5-0!) winter hats (size 0-12 months) and twenty snowsuit bags (size 0-12 months).
