Soon many Greater Victoria families struggling to choose between purchasing essentials like food or toilet paper won’t have to make that hard choice.
TP the Town Victoria, a toilet paper drive organized by the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce’s Prodigy Group, aims to collect 50,000 rolls of toilet paper by Saturday, Oct. 17. The collected rolls will be given out throughout the year to those experiencing homelessness or poverty.
Oak Bay residents can purchase discounted toilet paper Oct. 17 at Save-On-Foods and Country Grocer locations, dropping their donation with on-site TP the Town Victoria volunteers between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The event is organized by The Prodigy Group in partnership with the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness.
