Lets Send More than Love to Slave Lake!! Donations & Drop Offs!

A small Northern Alberta town, Slave Lake, has ended the weekend in a state of despair. People watched the news footage as nearly 30% of their towns structures have burnt to the ground, including hundreds of homes, churches and businesses. For more information on the fires please read The Globe & Mail’s article. I can’t believe the amount of love and support pouring in for the town! Read my sister’s beautiful post on Gratitude and Grace. If you are like me it is so difficult to sit back and feel helpless SOOO lets help!! Monetary Donations- The Red Cross is the best place to donate money! The Red Cross is already in action and they  need our support. Goods-We are currently working on getting our retailers to accept donations for Slave Lake residents who have run for shelter in the surrounding churches, community centers and loving homes! Please watch below for updated drop off locations. Our retailers will generously post their locations below. If there is no drop off location near you please email the team at to arrange alternative arrangements. What is needed? Everything from shampoo to blankets and clothes.
