The Bat Education and Environmental Protection Society (BEEPS), Summerland
March speaker was Amber Webster Kotak from the Metro Community speaking about Metro's work in Kelowna helping the homeless. Her presentation made us aware of some of the issues for homeless women, such as hygiene, safety, and child care.
If you or someone you know wishes to donate to Metro, either cash or in kind, read on.....
Metro Courtyard would take donations of soft snacks to hand out with lunch, instant oatmeal (the sugary kind), hot chocolate powder and peanut butter and jam.
The hygiene program would take donations of women and men's underwear, socks, toothpaste and disposable toothbrushes, deodorant, and cleaning cloths, actually. We do not need soap or mouthwash.
Funds donated can be directed to "Metro Central". These monies will go towards the operation of the (for now) two programs offered by Metro: the courtyard and the hygiene program.
Financial Donations can be given through the Canada Helps Website.c
