Clean-up kits for floods

Starting Tuesday morning, the Canadian Red Cross has made over 200 flooding clean-up kits available at their reception centre in Grand Forks, as hundreds of evacuees make their way home

"These are fully stocked flood recovery kits, that include a broom, scrubbers, bleach pads and air masks to support healthy breathing and respiration," said Liam Devine, disaster management coordinator with the Red Cross.

Residents from the Kootenay-Boundary district can pick up kits from the centre, located at the Grand Forks Curling Club, from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 22, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting Wednesday, May 23. 

"We encourage the residents to come down and see us, and help them register and hand those supplies out," Devine said. 

Canadians wishing to help the flood cleanup efforts by the Red Cross can donate here. The province will be matching all contributions made from May 16 to July 31.
