West Central Women’s Resource Centre (WCWRC) is an essential resource for women in Winnipeg. WCWRC offers a weekly give-away of hygiene products, where women receive essential items, including soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and more. WCWRC also provides menstrual products to all women during our open hours.

“Our hygiene giveaway program is important for the dignity and self-esteem of women,” says Merrill Grant, drop-in programs coordinator at WCWRC. “Providing these essential can help women and their families do more with limited budgets.”

Through the month of April, WCWRC is launching our 2019 hygiene drive Bring April Showers in an attempt to restock our shelves for those in need. The centre is asking individuals and organizations to consider donating unused and full-size bottles of shampoo and body wash, soap, sanitary pads and toothpaste – all the basic supplies needed for good hygiene. Cash donations as well as gift cards to drug stores or grocery stores are also welcome to allow the centre to purchase needed items.

Items can be dropped off at 640 Ellice Avenue when the centre is open or by calling 204-774-8975 to make arrangements. To donate online, visit wcwrc.ca/hygiene.

The West Central Women’s Resource Centre exists to empower women to help themselves, their families and their community to safer, healthier lifestyles.
