Christmas Beauty Product Drive

Fresh Food Weekly will be hosting a Christmas Beauty Product Drive for women who've been at the Women & Children's Shelter of Barrie at some point in time!

Beauty Product Gift Items

Last year we did this and it worked out really well! So, we are collecting unused and unopened beauty products that you may have sitting under your sink, or in your hallway closet. We are collecting beauty products such as:

  • Shampoo & conditioner

  • Soap

  • Bubble bath

  • Makeup & makeup brushes

  • Hair spray

  • Perfume

We'll take anything you can think of, as long as it fits within the realm of 'beauty products'!

Christmas Beauty Product Drive 2021

Last year, we did this for a bunch of women who've been in the women's shelter and some of them even told me that this was the only gift they would be receiving for Christmas that year. There are a few organizations here in Barrie who help low-income families with getting something for the kids for Christmas, but there aren't too many assistance programs (for gifts) for single moms and women who're struggling to make ends meet.

I am very happy to be able to offer these women a gift basket of various beauty products because I know this might be the only thing they get for Christmas this year.

Here is a photo of some of the gift baskets we were able to put together last year!

Donate Your Unopened Beauty Products

If you would like to make a beauty product donation, please contact Leah Dyck by email at: to make arrangements for pickup or drop-off in Barrie. We also have a drop-off location in Alliston as well:

23 Paris St., Alliston, Ont.

Items can be dropped off during the following days and time frames:

Wed to Fri: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Sat: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

New Beauty Products

If you would like to donate new products, I'm also able to issue you a charitable tax receipt for the total value of the donation, if you can provide some sort of sales receipt or invoice!

Gift Basket Recipients

We are not accepting recipient applications for these Christmas beauty product gift baskets quite yet, as the number of recipients we're able to help out this year will depend on the amount of donations that come in! Please stay tuned for more information on how to apply closer to the end of November!
