The volunteers were awesome and created hundreds of harm reduction kits for our communities. I hope each of them walked away with a better understanding of what harm reduction is and how important it is to our communities.

The group did an amazing job today, they totally transformed the supportive housing space. Staff and tenants love the bright colours…They were troopers and got right down to work.
