International Women's Day in Winkler, Genesis House


Manitoba shelters usually take donations of personal care items, new or gently used clothing for women and children as well as baby personal care items, formula, diapers and clothing. Each shelter has their own policies for accepting donations so it's important to call and enquire if what you have is something they can use or if they have the space to store it. On the MAWS website go to www.maws.mb.ca and look for "where can I go" to access contact information for the shelter closest to you.  Please call the administration line not the crisis line for enquiries. Shelter funding often does not cover the expense of these items so donations are gratefully accepted.
