ONWA GoBAGS

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ONWA began delivering various themed GoBAGS to support community members in their time of need.


The reality of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way organizations operate. The Ontario Native Women's Association (ONWA) continues to respond and adapt to the unique needs of our communities through our Community Coordination Approach.

Part of this Approach includes a provincial initiative that delivers GoBAGS to support community members in their time of need, utilizing a physical distance approach. ONWA embarked on this new initiative in April 2020. There are various themed GoBAGS available, each designed with a specific need in mind.
