You know the saying “when it rains, it pours?” Unfortunately its meaning became all too real this week as homes and businesses were flooded by high rain volumes and subsequent sewer backups.

We are sad to share the following news:

On Monday, July 23, the Bissell Centre East building was one of those affected by sewer water contamination in the Food Room, Kitchen, Child Care and Community Closet.  While any property damage is saddening, when a social agency that provides meals to more than 300 people a day, the ripple is felt throughout the community.

They are estimating the repair, clean up and replacement costs and damages will be substantal and are asking for support in any way you can.

Monetary Donations can be made:

They will also accept donations of:

  • Clothing, household goods, and children’s toys to the Bissell Centre Thrift Shoppe at 8818 – 118 Avenue.
  • Gift cards for Safeway and Wal-Mart.
  • Gifts of disposable plates and cutlery for  meals.
