Basketeers supports women in new beginnings. Tuffy P has been supporting this initiative for several years by putting together robust baskets filled with all kinds of things women starting a new life might need.
I was on delivery duty this morning. They’re very well organized with a team of volunteers who unload the baskets and take them inside. I was there fairly early this morning but already there was a wonderful assortment of generous baskets lining the tables.
Basketeers has grown from the original group covering the GTA to 10 additional chapters in Stratford, Ottawa, York, Hamilton, Brantford, Guelph, Penticton and Montreal. In fourteen years we have grown from the original group of Basketeers, each with their own drop off locations, all on the same day.
In GTA Basketeers supports numerous shelters helping women in our area.
