Kelowna, British Columbia | August 12, 2013 – The Salvation Army continues to provide assistance to the residents affected by the Rutland Apartment Fires in the form of food, clothing, household items and furniture through the Community Life Centre located at 200 Rutland Road South.
Major Ron Cartmell states, “We are very thankful for the residents of Kelowna whose vital support through donations is continuing to help people in this community come through the adversities in their lives. The communities help allows us to step in each day and facilitate the process to help get them back onto their feet, in a caring and compassionate way.”
“While most of us continue with our normal lives, many of the families affected are just now moving into their new homes. We are committed to providing assistance as long as the need is there. With the donations of good quality gently used items to our thrift stores, we will make those items available to families affected. This also allows us to provide support when the next emergency arises.” says Geri Grainger, Community Ministries Manager.
When disaster strikes, the Kelowna Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services team is here active in the community and is able to provide immediate aid and relief in the most relevant way.
The Salvation Army in Kelowna wants to express to the community their gratitude for the continued support. “Whether you are an energetic volunteer, a generous donor, or a supportive event sponsor, together we can make lives easier and help get people back on their feet. We could not do what we do without you. We deeply value your investment of time and resources, and we commit to wisely using your donations and gifts to provide the help that people need most,” expresses Suzie Docherty, Volunteer Coordinator.
