The Guelph chapter of the Basketeers is again this year collecting items for women transitioning from shelter to a new home.
The group puts together baskets of essentials that are then given to women starting over.
Most of the women have had to leave everything behind when they leave their situation and seek help at crisis centers. These baskets go along way in easing that transition.
What the Basketeers are looking for are anything from everyday essentials like sheets, pillows and toiletries to kitchenware and gift cards.
The baskets will be distributed Christmas morning but the drop off deadline is November 19th at Guelph Wellington Women in Crisis at 38 Elizabeth Street.
