Compassionate Resource Warehouse seeks final donations to help African families for the holiday season

This year, their aid has gone to people in Haiti, Pakistan, Thailand, Moldova, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and the Philippines.

Help families celebrate Christmas in Africa with a donation to the Compassionate Resource Warehouse this weekend. Saturday (Nov. 26) marks the last opportunity of the year to donate to the warehouse, just in time to ship out new or like-new gifts and aid supplies to African families for the holiday season.

The charity will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the local Mustard Seed, or cash donations, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at Lumberworld, 3955 Quadra St.

This year, their aid has gone to people in Haiti, Pakistan, Thailand, Moldova, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and the Philippines.

The warehouse, which only donates to registered charities abroad, will continue to accept donations of cash and supplies, the last Saturday of every month beginning again in January.

For more information, contact 250-888-6490.
