Some examples might be cigarettes, lighters, pouches of tobacco, matches, rolling papers, flashlights, condoms, feminine hygiene products, small travel pillows, batteries, small travel clocks or watches, kleenex pouches, reusable water bottles, clean socks and underwear, oral health products, sunglasses, sun hats or baseball caps, clean shoes, pocket change, Tim Horton’s or McDonalds or shopper’s Drug Mart or Dollarama or LCBO gift cards, pay as you go phones or phone cards, pocket knives, toilet paper, aspirin, a small Bible or inspirational book, small non perishable snacks, water, anything you can think of that a homeless person might need or want that they can carry around with them or place where they may rest their head at night.
You can give as little or as much as you want. The fill a purse campaigns start up next month and a few homegrown initiatives are looking for your donations right now.
