Donations and assistance request for Fort Mac evacuees
June 1, 2016

The Fort McMurray evacuee Donation Centre at the Bonnyville Community Baptist Church is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. this week. Starting Monday, June 6, the operating hours will be changed to 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day.

Pastor Ben Smith says organizers are in need of a couple of different items to restock the shelves. These include:

-Canned meat
-Canned fruit
-Spaghetti and other pasta noodles
-Can openers
-Body wash
-Fresh fruit
-Salt and pepper
-Hair brushes

Specific donations from the list can be dropped off at the Bonnyville Baptist Church, located at 4111-43 Ave.

Smith says the store will be running for a while longer so organizers are looking for volunteers to help run the "store". Please text 780-812-9329 or call 780-826-4801 if you would like to sign up for a specific shift, or sign up on the schedule at the church.
