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.
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!
