Giving Back: The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre

Giving Back: The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre

Established in 1978, The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (DEWC) is still to this day one of the few safe spaces in the Vancouver neighbourhood which exclusively supports self-identified women and their children. This caring and compassionate community brings basic needs and positive change to over 700 women, children and seniors daily in Vancouver BC. By providing everything from hot meals, secure mailing addresses, clothing, computer access, harm reduction supplies, as well as education, mentorship, and programs to empower their members, The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre plays a vital role in increasing awareness of the systemic injustice that needs to change.   

For the month of November, PAPER LABEL will donate 2% of online sales to the DEWC.  We encourage you to personally donate to the cause as well, whether it is through a cash donation or by dropping off needed items to the locations below.  The donation wish lists are updated frequently, so you can always check in to see what is in need.
