1) Toiletry Collection


Reminder to members that the Winnipeg Regional Women’s Committee is still accepting donations of toiletries (shampoo, soap, body wash, toothpaste, tooth brushes, etc…)  You can drop off donations at the Winnipeg regional office.  Donations are packaged and donated to programs that require toiletries and provide them to those in need in the community.


2) 6th Annual School Supply Drive


From May to the end of September, the PSAC Winnipeg Regional Women’s Committee (RWC) invites your local/branch to participate and collect school supplies.  Locals/Branches in the past have held collection drives in their workplaces for school supplies. 


If you local/branch chooses to donate funds instead of collecting supplies, you may mail or drop off a cheque* to:


Attn: PSAC Winnipeg Regional Women’s Committee
PSAC Winnipeg Regional Office
Suite 460 – 175 Hargrave Street
Winnipeg MB R3C 3R8


*cheques made to the ‘PSAC Winnipeg Regional Women’s Committee’.


PSAC Members Supporting Children’s Education


Since, 2009 over 70 boxes of school supplies have been gathered and donated by PSAC members in Manitoba.  These supplies have been distributed to 40 plus schools and funds raised have supported Winnipeg Inner City school lunch programs.


Together we can make a difference!!!
