If you have anything CLEAN/NEW and ORGANIZED BY CATEGORY for the 1500 refugees arriving in Surrey next week, you can drop it off at 

Access Gallery in Chinatown 12-5 on Wed & Thurs (Nov 25 & 26). 

 Especially coats/gloves/winter clothes, new soap/toiletries, bedding. Thanks to Martin Pescador and Julia Marshburn for organizing this.

More drivers are needed for Friday - probably late morning convoy? Pick up at Access gallery and take to the Middle Eastern Friendship Centre at 13483 108th Ave in Surrey (which is open 11:00 am to 6:00 pm Wednesday through Saturday usually). Thanks!

PS IT IS CRITICAL TO SORT AND LABEL YOUR DONATION. I just heard that it helps if all toiletries are in ziploc bags, and if other stuff is bagged or boxed by type (ie "women's adult clothes" etc.) to aid volunteers at the other end.

From the lady on Fb where I got this post but didn't post her name..

FINALLY: two small requests - don't message me please, and if you don't know me in real life, please don't send me a friend request. I got inundated with requests from strangers this morning. Thanks.
