Kelowna church needs volunteers sorting donations for evacuees

Church needs volunteers

Madison Erhardt

Donations are piled to the ceiling of many rooms at Willow Park Church in Kelowna in support of flood evacuees across B.C.

In the span of three days, the church says they received thousands of items from both church members and the community.

"It feels impossible to be able to put a number on it because we have literally got hundreds of bags of donations and From Friday, Saturday, Sunday it was an endless stream of community cars arriving here and dropping off. The devotion and the commitment and the wonder of our community are quite remarkable," lead pastor Phill Collins said.

The church has partnered with the Salvation Army in Kelowna and West Kelowna.

Evacuees are welcome to stop by the church to get items every day from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Collins says because of the extreme generosity the church is no longer accepting donations, but they do need more volunteers to lend a hand.

"From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. there is sorting to be done. There is packing that needs, organization. We have got so much we welcome anybody that would like to come and make a difference in that way."

Donations can still be dropped off at the Salvation Army in Westbank and Rutland.
