Posted on

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.

Wish List
-Lined paper, pens and pencils
-Laundry soap, dish soap, hand soaps
-New hygiene products – Shampoo and conditioner, lotion, deodorant, tampons, sanitary napkins, bath soap
-Gently used women’s pants, tops, skirts, coats

-Teapots, kettles, cups, coffee pots, plates, dishes, glasses, pots, napkins, cutlery

3. Labels for Education — TAAP will also be collecting labels from affiliated Campbell’s products (including Campbell’s soup labels, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish labels, V8 labels, and Prego tomato sauce labels) to donate to a Toronto school in need of educational materials.
We look forward to seeing as many women as possible and collecting as many goods as possible to donate!
Babes in arm welcome

    I’ll be there! Maybe we could offer to let sisters drop things off at the house if they can’t make the event and one of us could pick it all up the day of?
