Thank you to all the organizations and individuals who have generously contributed to fire relief efforts.
In the past two weeks the Kamloops Food Bank has received 20 deliveries from across BC and Alberta. Deliveries have come in all shapes and sizes ranging from 52-foot trailers to pick-up trucks. We have since distributed this product to 44 drivers who take food, hygiene items, water, and emergency supplies to affected areas. Supply recipients include Ashcroft, Interlakes, Cache Creek, Prince George, Lone Butte, and Princeton. Product was also delivered to the TRU Emergency Centre, the Sandman Centre and Sandman Hotel Emergency Supply Centre.
Onsite we have served almost 500 fire evacuees and their families as well as 200 pets. All clothing donations have been re-distributed to the Salvation Army Thrift Store.
Here are some pictures of your incredible generosity…
