It’s time again for SPUD’s Winter Bin Drive!
As the temperature drops and the winter weather sets in, we start bundling up. Layers of sweaters, Gortex, wool socks, and toques keep us safe and warm as we enjoy outdoor activities or dash from car to building, trying to avoid the cold, rain, and snow. But for families with limited resources, the cold can be devastating. That’s why SPUD is once again partnering with Victoria Women in Need Community Cooperative for this year’s winter bin drive.
Victoria Women In Need Community Cooperative supports women along their journey between crisis, financial self-sufficiency and wellness. As part of thier mission, they collect donations of new and gently used clothing and household items for women, men, and children. During the colder months, warm kid’s clothing can be a big challenge, so we’re proud to help them keep their clients warm!
Last year, SPUD customers donated warm clothes and other items to Victoria Women In Need Community Cooperative, and your donations were greatly appreciated! We hope you’ll help out again this year. The bin drive runs Nov 12th to Nov 30th, so be sure to leave your donations in your bins for pickup.
- Gently used children’s clothing, shoes, accessories
- Gently used hats, scarves, mitts
- New socks
- New toiletries and cosmetics
Victoria Women in Need Society also run New Start Program – a program that helps women leave the transition home and set up a new home for herself and her children. They are always in need of furniture and other household goods. To learn more about donating furniture, read this.
