Wildfire Response – July 17, 2017

Thank everyone who is reaching out to our hurting community with their time, donations, and prayers. We thank God for the lives that have been spared as the fires continue to spread.

We spoke with Lorretta at the Salvation Army today and their current need is for VOLUNTEERS!

Volunteer sorters

At Thrift Store (18th Ave.) – Adult volunteers are needed for sorting clothing and donated items.

Contact Susan Harder (250-564-4000, ext. 225).

Donations of gift cards and financial donations are still welcome (we will update this as this changes).

On Sunday at CNC they served dinner for 627 people and, just for scale, the Westwood auditorium seats a maximum of 500 people. It is only with the help of many volunteers that they are able to serve and we encourage you to serve with them!

Thanks everyone!
