November Needed Items List

Each month, Anova produces a Needed Items List for our shelters. This list can help you or your group with ideas when you are shopping for items to donate to our organization. (see online and print versions below) Anova operates two 24-hour Emergency Shelters in London. Reducing operating costs for the shelters through donations from the public helps ensure our essential services continue to be free of charge for abused women and children. Anova, formerly Women's Community House and Sexual Assault Centre London. Regrettably, we are unable to accept all donations received from the community.

  • out-of-season clothing
