Trish - I’ve attached our wish list items we need and use regularly. We are presently doing a Thanksgiving food drive through the churches so I would look at the other areas of need.  

I canvassed my colleagues and the receptionist who gives out a lot of these items at the front window and in order of what is requested most often, here’s the list;

 

Socks

Disposable Razors

Toothpaste

Toothbrushes

Men’s Deodorant

Shampoo

Bar of soap

Men’s briefs

Also, we have a truck that can pick up your collected items – this is very handy if you decide to do a men’s jean drive (gently used) and end up with a couple of hundred pairs!!)   

Everyone here thinks your Meet Up is wonderful – thanks Trish and let me know how things are going and if you need anything at all.

Also, if there is ever a chance to come by the centre, I am here Mon-Fri 9-5pm and I give school groups tours each day at 10am but we can organize something that might work for you and some of your Meet Up members.

 

Thanks again

 

**NOTE**

We will be having another discussion night and if anyone has any additional ideas or ways they can help contribute please feel free to post it. Every little bit helps!!

    I usually donate to CP, but would you take used clothes and jackets as well?

      The idea of this was slightly changed from its original start. We were collecting the items listed above that Good Shepherd was in need of. I held a few collection drop off nights and am delivering the items to their center once my next duffle bag is full.

    That is a great idea for sure.

    Hey everyone. I have 2 duffel bags full of stuff that is ready to go down to The Good Shepherd. Some of you have messaged that you have a few things to add to the bag which is fantastic. I will be at Wild Wing on Southdown/Truscott this coming Wed Nov 28th at 6:30. If you are able to come by to donate your items please let me know and I will hang around for a bit. Thanks again for your support! : )

    Hello everyone

    I am open to helping in any way I can. I am a tad confused though. Are you collecting items now that you are looking to give out on Dec 15 or is there a meeting prior to that? Are there additional items you are looking for in addition to what is listed above? If someone could clarify....I will do what I can.

    Hi Trish...Thanks again for the Winter Wear Fair Idea, really great!!!...The partnership with The Good Shepherd is a great idea, I actually volunteer for one of their youth homeless shelters, so I can chat with them to see if there are specific things that are needed on the youth side of things. Looking forward to the next meeting!!

      Hi Pete, I do remember you mentioning you work with Good Shepherd when we met. That would be great to get a further list of youth items needed. : )

    I will be posting her email and the wish list and hope that we are still able to help out.

    After our last meeting the group felt the original idea of this may be difficult as we are deal with a mobile food unit, which are not permitted in Toronto and also felt there were enough organizations doing this and we may be better off to team up with one of them and assist in their current needs. I have tried to make contact with a few organizations and Good Shepherd has been in contact and LOVES the idea of our group and encourage us to help with a wish list of items they are always in need of.
