Build A Village – List of needs for newcomers coming to Altona

We are pleased to report that the Altona Mall ownership group has generously agreed to allow Build a Village to use part of the former Sawatzky Furniture building for storage. As a result, we are now able to accept additional donations of furniture etc.

The Build a Village Drop Off Centre for Refugee Families will be OPEN this Monday, November 23 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. if you would like to donate new or gently used items for the five families we have agreed to sponsor.
