Big Hearts Small Footsteps

Big Hearts Small Footsteps… That's the motto of the Peg City Kindness Crew.



This mighty team of two Winnipeg women is collecting donations for school kids and people experiencing homelessness. They've only been active for two months and they're already overwhelmed by the community's outpouring of support but they still need your help. Jai Siwak and Deanna Stroud are the co-founders of Peg City Kindness Crew.

Hello to both of you, thank you for joining me! 

Hi Marjorie 

Hi! Jai, I want to start off with you, how did Peg City Kindness Crew start?

Jai what made you want to take action?

I just thought it shouldn't fall on teachers to feed their kids when they have enough on their plates and I just I don't know, I've always been one that thinks if everybody works together, everybody gets through something. 

So Deanna, what has the response been to your calls for donations?

Oh it's been incredibly overwhelming! People have been so generous and they're all just eager to help and pitch in however they're able to. We've just had tons of drop-offs and messages and people also just saying “oh this is so inspiring”, “tell me what I can do” so it's been it's been really overwhelming and amazing!

And Deanna, what amount of donations would you say you've collected?

Well half of my living room is now mountainized, Jai has no basement anymore, she's dropped off several loads to the schools already, our entire back end of the office  is just heaped! There's mountains of stuff and then monetary donations as well! I think Jai had said around close to $4000 maybe? It's been amazing, so good!

Right now we're in the middle of collecting and putting together essential backpacks for the homeless, which is really like shampoo, conditioner, soap, that sort of thing, mitts, toques. That's where I've been working with my friend's daughter as well and we're just starting to gear up for hampers for the schools, for the families that are struggling right now 

So Deanna, what kind of supplies are you still looking for?

For the backpacks where we're mainly focusing right now, toiletries would be a big one so toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, shampoo, soap, just those basics including mitts, scarves, hats, backpacks, warm things, just stuff that we can put together and again if people would like to do monetary donations we're also purchasing groceries  to create a hundred bagged lunches to hand out also so contributions towards that would be amazing also!

And Deanna if people want to donate, if they want to help, where can they go? Where can they find information?


Go Fund Me Link:


or they can call us we both work at Judy Lindsay Team Realty so our boss has been super supportive in letting us kind of branch out here too so 204.925.2900 and you can reach either myself or Jai and yeah just reach out that way 

Well Jai and Deanna it's absolutely incredible what you're doing!  Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us today.

That was Jai Siwak and Deanna Stroud. They are the co-founders of Peg City Kindness Crew they are still looking for donations to fill 100 backpacks for people experiencing homelessness. You can find out how you can help by visiting their Facebook page Peg City Kindness Crew
