Bonnyville Community Baptist Church Pastor Ben Smith says the donation centre will remain open for the next couple of weeks as requests continue to flow in from Fort McMurray evacuees.
Smith says donation centre organizers are in need of some specific items. At the moment organizers are looking for:
Canned fruit and vegetables
Salt, pepper and spices
Bug spray and sunscreen
RV friendly toilet paper
Garbage bags (clear)
Small bags of rice
Donation centre organizers are looking for volunteers to help run the "store" for several more weeks. Shifts are 9-12, 12-3, or 3-6. 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.
Specific donations from the list can be dropped off at the Bonnyville Baptist Church, located at 4111-43 Ave.
