Kitchener

Stay tuned for details on the 2021 campaign.

Welcome to Kitchener Basketeers.

This chapter was created in 2015 by Allison and Lynne and we are excited to be taking over as coordinators for the journey of support. We have been part of the organization as donors and are looking forward to our new roles. Kitchener-Waterloo has always had a strong sense of community and social justice. People are always willing to reach out and help a friend or stranger in need.

Our goal is to provide baskets filled with household and personal items to support women as they transition from shelters into supportive housing. Moving into a new home is a huge step and many of these women will not have basic items.  Increasing numbers of women in this region lack a safe and secure place to call home and are considered the highest vulnerability risk. We are asking for donations of baskets filled with necessities, single items or money that we can use to purchase items.

We are hoping that through the support of donors we can offer them hope, strength and encouragement.

Please email us at to learn more about drop off locations and item lists.
