We hold the residents of Lytton, BC, in our thoughts and prayers as they deal with the devastation of their community by wildfire, days after enduring the highest temperatures ever recorded in Canada. Other communities in the province also face fire danger and we hold them in our thoughts as well.
Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc has generously opened their hearts and space to welcome all evacuees to their community at Moccasin Square Gardens on the reserve. They have said the best way we can help them is by providing gift cards. Kamloops United Church is collecting money for cards for gas, food and clothing.
If you would like to contribute, you can donate through the following link:
Chose ‘5. General’ and mark “Fire Relief” in the notes. Kamloops United Church will then purchase gift cards for food or fuel to immediately help those in need (Canada Helps handles Kamloops United Church donations).
