Not Just Tourists Toronto looking for suitcases etc.

We recently received an email from Not Just Tourists Toronto, a volunteer-based, not-for-profit project that collects surplus medicines and medical supplies for use in Cuba and other developing countries:

Greetings. Over the past few weeks there has been a flood of requests
coming in to Not Just Tourists Toronto for packed suitcases. The
small mountain of empty suitcases we had stockpiled last fall is
almost depleted. We need your help in finding more.

What we are looking for are medium sized suitcases, either soft or
hard sided, as well as duffle bags, sports bags, and soft bags of
various kinds. The suitcases and bags need to be relatively clean and
have working handles or straps. We have found that large suitcases
with heavy wheels and handles, or foldable clothing bags don't serve
our purposes.

Can you help by looking in your basements and garages, and by speaking
to your relatives, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, and people in
the groups that you belong to?

All offers of suitcases should be directed to Dorothy Rusoff. She can
be reached at (416) 461 8709 or
