Due to a fire that destroyed an apartment building in Altona this past week, some newcomer families have been left with little or no household & personal items. Please pray for these families as they recover from this traumatic experience.
You can help…Build a Village has been working tirelessly to find alternative housing for these families but will need the community to donate gently used or new household items and/or help out financially for things like grocery gift cards, window coverings, etc.
Currently BAV is looking to gather the supplies listed below for 2 families with 2 other families needs still being assessed.
Check the list below (also available on BAV facebook page) for what is needed. If you have something you would like to donate, please let Val Klassen know by (cell) 204-216-0494 or contacting them directly on their facebook page.
