Due to the severe thunderstorm we experienced on Monday, July 23, parts of downtown experienced a sewage surge/backup, including our Bissell Centre East building. The contamination and fumes are so severe that we had to close our building, including our Food Room, Kitchen, Child Care and Community Closet.
The extent of the damage is still being assessed however we are currently estimating repair, clean up and replacement costs and damages are severe.
As our storage areas for food are compromised, we are asking you for support the best way you can – helping us via monetary donations. Donations can be made:
- Online at http://bissellcentre.org/donate/
- By Phone at 780.423.2285 Ext. 365
- By Mail to 10527 – 96 Street, Edmonton, AB, T5H 2H6
You can also help by:
- Donating clothing, household goods, and children’s toys to the Bissell Centre Thrift Shoppe at 8818 – 118 Avenue.
- Contributing gift cards for Safeway and Wal-Mart.
- Providing gifts of disposable plates and cutlery for our meals.
All aid is valuable. Thank you for your generous support.
