TAAP will be collecting the following items:

1. Clothing and accessories — Clean out your closet! TAAP will be collecting clothing to donate to Sistering, a women’s agency serving homeless, marginalized and low-income women in Toronto. Their programs and services help women gain greater control over their life circumstances. Their advocacy focuses on changing the social conditions that put women at risk. Their service philosophy is to ensure that women’s dignity is not eroded by poverty and homelessness.
