This is our 7th year handing out these amazing gift bags provided by Canada’s Cannabis Community! This year we gave out 150 bags. These bags included: winter coats, gloves, toques, scarves, socks, hand warmers, loaded food cards for Tim’s and McDonalds, teas, razors, shaving cream, toothbrushes, wet wipes, shampoo/ conditioner and other toiletries, milk cookies….. and for those who wanted- a little gift of cannabis with rolling papers and a lighter. This year you may find the video a little shorter(and for good reason!) we spent a lot time at a women’s shelter chatting with women who lived there and handing out purses and tote bags. Many of these women have ran from domestic violence. After speaking with a woman for a bit, I decided we shouldn’t use any footage from there for possible safety concerns . We ended the day at Overdose Prevention site at Moss Park. We brought the lovely workers there some coffee and loaded Tim’s cards for when they needed them.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. Year one was just a few bags with gloves, a toque and cannabis. Our Cannabis community really knows how to come together and make things grow!(lol)
… year 8 will be even better!!
Thank you again to EVERYONE that makes this possible!!
