Downtown Public Pop-Up Toilet is Currently Seeking Donations

 
 

The Winnipeg Toilet Initiative is a Downtown Winnipeg BIZ funded venture addressing the topic of the need for accessible washrooms in Winnipeg’s downtown core. For the last phase of the pilot project, we will be moving the toilet to Main St. & Henry Ave. While there, we would like to give away care packages to those in need as well as offer some information about our CHAT program.

We are currently seeking donations for the following items (however anything at all would be greatly appreciated):

  • Backpacks (new, gently used)
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Shampoo
  • Soap
  • Deodorant
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Mitts
  • Hats
  • Granola bars
  • Juice boxes
  • Water bottles
  • Pink/blue ribbon
  • Other

In order to assemble the care packages in time, we kindly ask that donations be dropped off at our office at 426 Portage Avenue by September 24, 2018. In exchange for donations, we would love to share your organization/business name and brand through our media channels. The toilet is scheduled to open at Main St. & Henry Ave. from Mon Oct 1st – Fri Oct 5th.

If you have any questions, please contact Tracey Umali by phone at 204-958-4621 or by email at tracey@downtownwinnipegbiz.com.
