Top 6 Ways Support Manitoba Women’s Shelters This Season

Emergency shelters provide safety, shelter and support to women and children when they need it most. This holiday season, we want to thank Manitoba women’s shelters for their work and show our support.

Visit the Manitoba Association of Women’s Shelters website for a full list of shelters as well as links to their specific needs.

6) Hosting a holiday event? Consider donating profits to a Manitoba shelter.

5) Donate items that are always in need such as women’s underwear, feminine hygiene products, diapers and baby wipes.  Visit the website of the shelter you want to make a donation to in order to check out what they need most right now.

4) Have more than enough stuff?  Consider asking friends and family to donate to a Manitoba shelter in lieu of giving you a holiday gift.

3) Major items-in-need like a refrigerator can be difficult to collect. Start a drive for hard-to-come-by item on shelter’s wish list. Visit a Manitoba shelter’s website to find out what items are on their wish list.

2) Become a volunteer, or serve as a member on the organization’s Board

1) Have conversations with the people in your life about family violence. Open dialogue helps to address stigma and break the silence around family violence.

We thank Manitoba Women’s shelters for their dedication and we wish everyone a safe and happy holiday!
