Care Packages


SWAN Waterloo Region provides essential and self-care items to sex workers, with a focus on Waterloo Region’s street-based workers. Each care package contains items as well as information on harm reduction resources and services available to the community.

Care package items could include cosmetics, skincare, soap, lotions, makeup wipes/wipes in general, accessories, purses, reusable bags, backpacks, dancing clothes, other clothes, and prepackaged snacks.


Get a Care Package

Are you a sex worker who wants a care package? Do you have suggestions about where we should distribute them? Here are three ways to let us know:

  1. Come by the Sex Worker Drop-In and pick up a care package (for sex workers only).
  2. Email us at email swanwaterlooregion1@gmail.com.
  3. Use the Contact Us form to get in touch.

Perpetual Donation Drive

SWAN has partnered with local businesses and agencies so you can easily donate items to be used in our care packages.

Unused items could include, but aren’t limited to, cosmetics, skincare, soap, lotions, makeup wipes/wipes in general, accessories, purses, reusable bags, backpacks, dancing clothes, other clothes, and prepackaged snacks.
