I’ll be making a trip to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre this week to drop off some soaps and socks and other items on their Christmas Wish list. The Centre was established in 1977 as a drop in centre for women and children living in poverty. They also provide a women-only emergency night shelter. They are a safe haven for women on the downtown eastside. Check out their wish list. They need food items for their holiday meals as well.
