The Warm Wishes for Women Project


The women of AWAA understand how difficult housing insecurity can be and how dehumanising it can feel to be homeless. We want to help.

This winter, we are kicking off our inaugural effort in Calgary: the first annual 
Warm Wishes for Women project!

We are putting together female-centered care packages to distribute to the most vulnerable women in our city. These packages will include dental hygiene and menstrual products, warm gloves and socks, snacks, gift cards, and anything else we can collect to include. 

Our first goal is to have 25 packages distributed before December 25, 2020.

We need your help! We are currently accepting donations of any of the above items and can arrange (safe, physically-distanced) pickup within Calgary. If you have any donations of new/unused items, please contact us at 

Alternately, if you would like to have items sent to us directly, please see our amazon wishlist! It's updated all the time and allows us to get necessities to women experiencing homelessness. 

To contribute financially to this or our future work, please make a donation today!

Please help us make this (already very difficult) year a little warmer for women in Calgary.
