Personal Care Products Drive at The Barber of Seville

Whether it’s just-washed hair, a shave, or the feel of freshly brushed teeth, we all want to take care of ourselves and look our best. For the homeless in our community and others who are down on their luck, this is not always an option.

Manitoba Opera is asking patrons to consider bringing much-needed personal care products and toiletries to The Barber of Seville. Donations will be distributed to Lighthouse Mission, Siloam Mission, and the Main Street Project.

There will be a drop-off area in the lobby at all three performances. Items can also be dropped off at the MO office from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday.

Suggested Items
(all items must be new/unopened)

  • Alcohol-free personal hygiene products
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Deodorant
  • Foot powder
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Razors and shaving cream
  • Lip balm
  • Bandages
  • Travel-size tissue packages
  • Socks

Thank you for joining Manitoba Opera in giving a hand to people in our community affected by homelessness.
