The new reality of COVID-19 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 Drop and GoBAGS to support community members in their time of need, utilizing a physical distance approach. There are various themed GoBAGS available, each designed with a specific need in mind.
GoBAGS themes include:
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
NEW! Fresh Fridays
Beginning in July, ONWA is introducing a new GoBAG called "Fresh Fridays"; because taking care of health during a pandemic is essential and food is medicine. Fresh Fridays will provide healthy, fresh produce to community members across Ontario.
If you are interested in receiving a GoBAG, requests can be made by calling ONWA's Centralized Intake at 807-623-3442 or Toll Free at 1-800-667-0816. Please be advised that quantities may be limited. Request will be filled in the order received.
