The family whose home burned on Skaarland Road this weekend can use any donations you are able to give.

Cash donations only (for the moment) may be left at Rona. If you have any questions phone 250-635-6273 and speak to either Dave Merritt or Shawn McCullough.

A trailer has been parked on the warehouse side of Rona to accept any furniture or other donations until a trailer is moved to the family's property. The warehousemen are aware and will accept your donations .

Thank you.
THIS WAS A TWO STORY HOME - NOW IT IS COMPLETELY DEMOLISHED - THEY LEFT AT 3 AM IN THEIR PJ'S.  TWO KIDS AND THREE ADULTS WERE LUCKY TO SURVIVE BUT NOW THEY HAVE NOTHING.

Claudette, I have left messages for Dave Merritt and Shawn and told them I can't carry the dishwasher to them. Please let Chris know he can pick it up and store it for them for when they move into their new place...Do they want it? Trying to help. I live 3 blocks from Rona...

I have a dishwasher that works well, just changing the colours in my kitchen. Claudette, could someone come & pick it up for them? Need a truck to come & get it. I would love to donate this to them
Another example
Comment by Dave on 13th April 2011
I wish I was in or near Terrace to donate some of needed things that I don't need anymore.
my sympathy to the family.
This and the response is just another example of the value of the online Newspaper (Newsether?).
While many find fault with the editor's opinions etc. they still check it out regularly.
For an item like this to be reported in the paper media, which has a limited number of purchasers and basically local circulation only - there would not be the word spread fast and far.
Keep at it Merv!
Shoe sizes

The girls wear shoes sizes 12 and 1.
