Not Just Tourists is an organization which works to send medical supplies to countries in need.
With the recent earthquake in Türkiye and Syria—we have been busy on the logistics of getting supplies out there.
Here is what the Not Just Tourists Toronto chapter is struggling to acquire:
- Large to medium sized suitcases (with wheels)—We pack these with bags of medical supplies for travelers to deliver to a needful clinic in their travels. The Toronto chapter is completely out as of last week and this is travel season so we are scrambling to acquire more.
- Ziplock bags (Sizes: Large freezer bags, 10″ x 13″ bags, and 13″ x 15.5″ bags)—We bag our donated medical supplies into these to keep them organized within the suitcases. Our volunteers must pay for these out of pocket when we run out.
For drop-off details:
- 240 Roncesvalles Avenue (the Roncesvalles United church) between 10:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday (church’s office hours) or between 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. on Wednesday (NJT’s weekly suitcase packing party).
- ETT office (300–4211 Yonge Street) drop off: 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Donations accepted at the ETT office until March 9.

Note: Not Just Tourists is non-religious and non-political. The church staff are kind enough provide us space for donations and packing parties, but are otherwise uninvolved.
