FLOOD UPDATE: PTI Delivers Emergency Supplies To Bissell Centre!

by | POSTED: Jul 27, 2012

Severe flooding has damaged much of our basement facilities and the stockpiles of food and clothing on which our community depends.  PTI – one of Bissell Centre’s trusted and valued donors – stepped forward today with a huge grocery delivery brimming with much needed  emergency supplies!
Extreme rainfall has negatively affected many homes and businesses in the Edmonton area, including those of PTI.  Thankfully, our generous partners recognize that poverty is a hardship on all 365 days of the year.  Without this outpouring of aid, we would be unable to ensure that children, families and individuals have access to the core services that Bissell Centre provides including daily nutrition, quality childcare and access to clean clothing.

PTI’s commendable donation of fruit, sandwiches, milk, socks and soap – among a great many other goods – will go a long way to ensure that Bissell Cente can continue to serve the community as we cope with the aftermath of sewage flooding.

As we continue to receive donations, we would like to thank partners like PTI for helping make our community a better place for everyone.
