Winter wood supply to benefit disaser relief

Timberline Interact Club students are holding a wood cut to raise money for packages that will be sent to people suffering from disaster overseas

Timberline Interact Club students are holding a wood cut to raise money for packages that will be sent to people suffering from disaster overseas.

The seasoned firewood has been donated by Barry Watchorn and must be pre-ordered. Students will stack and deliver the wood on Sat., May 14. All proceeds will go towards buying disaster boxes, formerly called Shelter Boxes, through the Interact Club’s connection with the Campbell River Daybreak Rotary Club.

The boxes, which are worth $750, contain a tent, blanket and all the equipment someone would need to survive after a disaster.

The disaster boxes are purchased and distributed through Disaster Aid Canada, which is supported by the Rotary Club.

The organization also has family survival packs that have allowed Disaster Aid Canada to connect several tents to form schools, hospitals and even community centres.

To pick-up ($110) and pre-order wood ($150), please call Barb Izard at 250-923-9500 ext. 218 or e-mail barb.izard@sd72.bc.ca
