HELP OTHERS HAVE A BRIGHTER HOLIDAY THIS YEAR – PAY IT FORWARD
Stop by Thyme & Again or other participating Wellington West businesses and pick up your tote!
Here is the list of wish items that hopes to be collected for Cornerstone Requested Items
Caldwell Family Centre is requesting:
- Baby food. There are many families currently being housed in the Travel Lodge on Carling since the family shelter closed. Living in cramped quarters with only a microwave to cook, they can’t make their own baby food so rely on our Baby Depot
- Hats and mitts for babies as many babies accompanying their mothers to the Baby Depot are without
- Hats, scarfs, and waterproof gloves for the older children as wool mittens get wet and cold when they play outside (our afterschool program includes outside play before they do homework)
- The senior men always need warm socks and gloves. When we include these items in their Christmas Hampers it is often the only gift they receive.
- Personal care items are always a big expense for people living in poverty. Everything from tampons to laundry detergent, shampoo, and soap are needed
We always need all sizes of warm clothing for men, women and children – new or used. We are seeing many Newcomers at the Family Centre without proper winter ware.
