Providing The Bare Neccessities

To reflect the work that is done at the Na'amat Canada Glickman Centre, women's rights centres and other Na'amat installations in Israel, certain branches of Na'amat Canada have instituted these social service projects, aiming to fulfill the essential needs for local women and their families.

Kosher Food Bank

Na'amat Canada Toronto has committed to feeding hungry people in their community. The Kosher Food Bank is an initiative where Na'amat members from Toronto assist in collecting Kosher non-perishable food products on an on-going basis. The collected food is then donated to a local synagogue who then distributes food baskets. Na'amat Canada Toronto is responsible for feeding between 100 and 150 families each week!

Career Gear for Underprivileged Women

Not every woman has a power suit, but every woman should!
Na'amat Canada Hamilton members and friends give a leg up to women who need it by contributing gently used business attire. In partnership with the organization, Dress for Success, the clothes are distributed to underprivileged women who are attending job interviews and starting new job placements. This local social service project is the first step to a better life for these women of all walks of life who have been down on their luck.

Toiletries for Women's Shelters

It is a triumph for an abused woman to have the strength and courage to escape from their dangerous living environment in search of refuge. Unfortunately many victims of abuse are only able to flee in the dead of night with just the clothes on their backs. Throughout the year, Na'amat Canada Toronto's Club Aviva collects donated toiletries and cosmetics from Na'amat Canada members and friends. Volunteers package these products up and distribute them to women's shelters every few months. These toiletries include soap, shampoo, conditioner, disposable razors, cotton swabs, toothbrushes, toothpaste and other basic necessities that the victims of violence might not have the opportunity to take with them when they leave their homes.
