Call for Donations
Support intersectional sex worker justice! We are a grassroots volunteer-based organization. Please support our work by making a donation.
Any E-Transfer donations can be sent to: SWAPhamilton@gmail.com or message us for information on sending a check.
Postal mail can be addressed to SWAP: #105- 370 Main Street East, Hamilton, ON L8N 1A2
Please reach out to your community networks, leverage your relationships with business(es) owners, and encourage a donation of items or funds to SWAP on your personal social media. This is so we can really start making a tangible effect in the lives of those who are most vulnerable and in need of moral, and social support.
If you are a business who would like to display our print resources, please contact us.
We mainly look for clothing donations such as bras and underwear, socks, and seasonal wear like jackets and gloves/hats/mittens. For other clothing items, the Eva Rothwell Centre has a very good system for providing low-income folks with clothing; please donate those items there.
Please email us at SWAPHamilton@gmail.com or contact through Facebook for information about dropping off donations.
