As our province moves from crisis response to relief & development, we will be coming alongside Samaritan's Purse. They are coming to Abbotsford with a national effort as there are 600-800 houses in Abbotsford that have to be mudded out.
Teams coming from CLA will be led and directed by Samaritan's Purse team leaders. Their headquarters will be set up at Northview Community Church for the next 3-6 months and will house up to 200 volunteers during this time. If you are interested in serving 'boots on the ground', this is a great opportunity. Volunteers must be 18yrs to volunteer or between 16 & 17 yrs old with an accompanying adult. Samaritan's Purse will provide PPE as volunteers are dealing with so much black water. Click HERE to sign up as a volunteer.

At this time, what is needed most is monetary donations to help us quickly respond to specific needs that the communities we are working with request. To give online follow the link below. You can also give via text to 84321 - just type [amount] emergency relief
