Yet another organization doing great work that would be happy to receive donations of excess fruit.
North Point Douglas Women’s Centre
North Point Douglas Women’s Centre exists to create opportunities for women to develop their potential and engage fully as citizens of their community. Their vision is a safe, healthy, vibrant community for women and families in which all forms of violence against women are addressed by engaging the community in prevention and care.
