‘Take what you need; Leave what you can’ is the philosophy of these mini trading posts, stocked with food items and supplies to help people through COVID-19
There are currently at least 5 mini libraries/trading posts in our neighbourhood (let us know if you’re aware of more!). While they are generally stocked with books, all have been re-purposed for the distribution of food items and other supplies that people might need to help them through the pandemic.
Through the winter months, we are including warm items like toques, scarves, mitts, boot liners, and hot pockets in the pantry offerings. New warm items are donated by community members and purchased with support from SaskEnergy’s Share the Warmth program.
HCA is currently stocking all of these pantries weekly, but we need our community’s help to keep them full and functioning. We encourage all residents to keep an eye on them, help keep them stocked if you can, and report any damaged or empty pantries to HCA.
