Items in High Demand

Goods for abused women

The Coronavirus inspired “panic-buying” across the nation and it was a shock when toilet paper was nowhere to be found. Now we can look back and laugh at how silly that hoarding phase was and hope that shortages like that won’t happen again. There are still no definitive answers on why TP was the hot commodity, but one could theorize it’s because of a$$holes. Luckily, we now have a bountiful supply so our bottoms can rest at ease.

Unfortunately for shelters across Toronto, it still feels like the Costco shelves are barren, and tumbleweeds are blowing past the isles. WomenAide, which is a group dedicated to donating goods-in-kind to women who have suffered spousal abuse, are looking for some extra help. They’ve been organizing drives for the past 12 years, and they are at it again.  There most in demand items – toilet paper, shower gel and feminine hygiene products.

How you can help

We’re asking neighbours to pool funds to top up their stockpile of these highly sought-after items. We can all agree there’s nothing funny about running out of TP, and there especially isn’t anything funny about a lack of feminine hygiene products…period!

More Details: WomenAide

WomenAide is a Toronto-based non-profit group founded in 2006. Their mission is to donate goods-in-kind to women who have suffered spousal abuse. Through community partners and passionate volunteers, WomenAide has collected and donated thousands of personal care products to women in need. These goods have been distributed to women’s abuse shelters throughout Toronto.

The products are used in two ways: 1) by families staying at a shelter, or 2) they are packaged in “support kits” to the families that have transitioned out of the shelter in to housing. Either way, they go towards a heart-felt purpose.

When Everything Changed

It was February 2018, and I was running super late for an important pitch meeting for a big account. I was stressed and anxious about closing the deal. I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.

Troop Started a Year Ago – Is it Working?

It was a year ago this month that I started Troop. The idea was simple. I believed that if more neighbours knew about the needs in their area then they would be more willing to help. I believed (and still do!) that more people want to help
