Women’s Outreach Opportunity Program

About us:

We are Jessica A., Talia G., and Olivia S., three teens who are part of the J-Teen program at Kehillat Beth Israel. As part of the program, we have developed W.O.O: Women’s Outreach Opportunity Program. With your support, we hope to provide assistance to underprivileged women in the Ottawa community.

How to Help:

We researched what the most pressing needs are at various homeless shelters in our city. However, in order to meet our goal of providing these essential items to Ottawa’s most vulnerable women, we need your assistance.

Our plan is to provide you with an “ask” each month. This month, (Until July 1st) we are seeking:

  • New or gently-used blankets (twin size only please)

  • New or gently used twin sheets sets

These are the items that The Cornerstone Housing for Women have requested.


If you would be so kind as to donate these items, we would appreciate you contacting us via email: ottawa.w.o.o@gmail.com, and we will send you three possible locations that you can drop off your items. Please indicate if the locations provided are inconvenient for you, as we are happy to pick up your donations from you.

Contact Us:

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Talia Gitter @ ottawa.w.o.o@gmail.com.
