What a Relief! Easy Peezy Now in Rossland.
Things are improving in our area for parents of young children.
Coming hot on the heels of the opening of the first Easy Peezy Family Washroom site in downtown Trail last month, Rossland now has its own newly renovated location at the Rossland Public Library. “We are thrilled to have more organizations jumping at the chance to come on board with this initiative,” says Christy Anderson of the Family Action Network. “Local parents identified the need for more family washrooms as part of a survey FAN did in 2013. We continue to partner with organizations, businesses and funders to establish a network of family washrooms throughout our region in response to this parent-driven request.”
Mayor Kathy Moore attended the opening ceremoney and was heard wondering whether the tiny washrooms at City Hall could be adapted somehow to become Easy Peezy facilities.
The Easy Peezy initiative provides family washrooms in the downtown areas of our local communities that are clean, safe and furnished with appropriate amenities for your youngest family members. The sites offer a needed service for families with young children who are spending time in our downtowns.
Easy Peezy sites are marked with a decal on the door so that when a parent or caregiver sees the Easy Peezy logo, they know they can bring their little ones in to that location and use the washroom, without having to be a customer, or attend a program.
More locations will be unveiled as additional Easy Peezy sites are established in Trail, Rossland, Warfield and other Lower Columbia communities. FAN is actively seeking partnerships with businesses and organizations that would like to become Easy Peezy hosts. Interested businesses or organizations can contact FAN Coordinator Christy Anderson at 1-855-368-3707. More information on the Easy Peezy initiative can be found at familyactionnetwork.ca.
