TAAP’s Item Donation Day – Saturday March 27 1-3 PM

Come to the Toronto Area Alumnae Panhellenic (TAAP) Item Donation Day! TAAP will be collecting items to donate to assorted local charities in the Greater Toronto Area.

Stop by the Alpha Omicron Pi Chapter house, 24 Madison Avenue, Saturday March 27th from 1 – 3 pm, to drop off your goods, meet other TAAP members, and have refreshments!

The Beta Tau house is easily accessible from the Spadina TTC stop
TAAP will be collecting the following items:
1. New to IDD!!! – We’re collecting new and gently used books for St. Raymond Elementary school which is senior kindergarten to grade eight. Over the holidays the school experienced a flood in their library and lost a great portion of their books.
2. 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.
