Women's Resource Society looking for food donations

The Women’s Resource Society is looking for the public’s help.

Spokesperson Emily Goodman says the society is looking for non-perishable items to re-fill the shelves of the food bank.

Now, in addition to the food bank, the Society offers programs to women in need, including a 12-unit shelter for women and children called Sky’s Place.

Goodman says the society has a legal advocate, who offers services to both men and women. There is also an outreach store, where women can get free clothing and necessities.

She also says the Women’s Outreach Society’s food service differs from other food banks in the area.

Anyone interested in donating food can drop in at the Centre, located at 10051 – 100th Avenue.
