As some of you may have read, a family lost all their gifts in a fire earlier this week. They have a 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son. Here’s the story
We’ve decided to pitch in and help this family give their children the Christmas they had hoped for. I’ve been collecting donations to go shopping, and others have expressed interest in purchasing items themselves. Below is the list of goods that were destroyed. If you’d like to help with a donation, you can email transfer money to firstname.lastname@example.org (contact me with password), if by chance we exceed the amount needed, I will donate the surplus to Winnipeg Harvest.
If you decide to buy an item of the list, please let me know so I can remove it.
I’m currently trying to find a centrally located drop off place (if you can help, let me know!) otherwise I will spend Sunday the 15th doing pick ups throughout the city, so we can coordinate then.
Please share this with anyone you think may want to help. Thank you so much!
Items will be checked off as they are purchased.
