    Default Women's Community House - October Wish List

    Reducing costs through donations from the public helps ensure our essential service to abused women and children.

    Regrettably, we are unable to use some of the donations received from the community including: bulk garage sale leftovers, large used appliances, and out-of-season clothing.


    NEEDED ITEMS FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER
    ‘Basic Needs’ Month
     Conditioner
     Shampoo
     Children’s teddy bears (new)
     Cereal
     Paper lunch bags
     Dish soap
     Journals and day planners
     Children’s snacks and drink boxes
     Women’s socks
     Diapers (size 6)
     Batteries
     Notebooks


    For women starting a new home, our residents also need new or nearly new:

     Sets of china
     Sets of glasses
     Cutlery
     Pots and pans
     Linens
     Can openers and small appliances (in working condition)


    *** Don’t forget Halloween! We will need costumes and treats. ***


    Our priority needs always include: linens, women’s sleepwear, cutlery. Donations can be dropped off during business hours Monday through Friday at the shelter at 101 Wellington Road. Our staff is best equipped to receive donations at this time.

    THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

    Wonderful- I already have 2 bags of diapers-size 6 that I was planning on donating after reading a post this weekend. I will get a few more of the needed items and make a trip over.
    Thank you for posting!!!

    We bottle the left over shampoo at work and bring it down to them they are always so greatful, as well as our bedspreads. But now that I see a list, I will drop off more stuff on my weekly dropoffs. Thanks Brianne

    Could they use some baby fruit jars I wonder, our twins don't want that texture anymore, and I do have a box of organic cereal that is open but unused, wonder if they'd take it, there's none out of the box. The girls got really sick and when they got better they didn't want baby cereal or loose textured foods. What do your think Geomamma?

    Perfect timing. We've decided to get rid of a lot of stuff that we haven't used and some of it is on the list.

    Girlsmum, I think Rothholme Womens and Family Shelter (On Stanley St, east of Wharncliffe) would be a great place to take baby food. I don't know much about the WCH - just the wish list.

    There is also a Baby Food Bank in the east end (I want to say maybe near the Crouch library?) which accepts formula, baby food, diapers, etc. That would also be an excellent choice. I'll found out the deets.

    It's actually in the Crouch Library. I gave them some baby food jars DD doesn't use anymore, and when I watched them put them in the cupboard, there was hardly any food in there at all. I also noticed they had a fresh veggie in there, so maybe you can take fresh fruits and veggies to that one, unlike the other food bank.
    Either way, you can take baby food to the normal food bank if that's closer to you.
