Assisting women in new beginnings

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

Each year in Canada, violence and abuse drive more than 100,000 women and children out of their homes and into shelters.

For more than 20 years, Basketeers supporters have curated wrapped laundry baskets for women at risk filled with household and personal care items to assist them in their new beginnings. Imagine how hard it would be to leave most of your belongings behind. This is a kind gesture to make this transition a little easier. 

The need continues to be great.
