For this year’s Film for a Cause, the Kamloops Film Festival is partnering with Kamloops YMCA-YWCA Violence Against Women Intervention and Support Services to help them collect in-need items. There are a few films in the lineup this year whose themes align with the important work that this organization does, so we thought we would offer our assistance.
YMCA-YWCA frontline staff have noted some gaps in items that they like to have on hand at the shelter for passing along to the women and their children:
- Facewash/cleanser (*have lots of body wash and soap)
- Hair elastics, headbands & bobby pins
- Hair conditioner (*have lots of shampoo)
- New pillows
- Nail clippers
- Women’s slippers
- Baby products (shampoo, wash, wipes, etc. *have lots of diapers)
Representatives from the YMCA-YWCA will be on hand before our final screening of 20th Century Women to gather any donated items or cash contributions. Based on the huge success of our partnership with the Kamloops Food Bank last year, we know we can count on our patrons to assist in this worthwhile initiative.
