On a spring night at the beginning of the pandemic, two Ottawa women hit the streets to support some of their most vulnerable neighbours. Luxe Mulvari and Kingsley Swim brought food, masks, sanitizer and other essential items to sex workers and people who didn’t have a place to live.  

Fast-forward to the present. Mulvari and Swim have expanded to serve more of those living on the margins in the city, and ‘Hit the Streets’ is officially a sponsored organization. All of this was made possible by the connections Mulvari and Swim made through social media.
