Burns Lake resident to take donations to evacuees in Prince George

He’s asking the community to help fill his 19-ft truck

Burns Lake resident Charlie Rensby is asking the community to help fill his 19-ft truck with donations so that he can help wildfire evacuees in Prince George.

Donations can be taken to P&B Feeds’n’Needs, which is located at 910 Torikka Drive next to the Sunshine Inn in Burns Lake. After hours, people can contact Rensby directly at 250-692-6447 and he will collect the donations.

“What we need is items such as, but not limited to, bottle water, juice boxes, hygiene products, women’s products, daily need things, sunscreen, Advil, toothbrushes, snacks, diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, laundry soap pods, shampoo shave cream/razors, etc.,” he said.

“Can also accept gently clean, used or new, toys/games for kids,” he continued. “Strollers, play pens, change table, kids pottys, etc.”

“So far all we have heard about animal supplies is salt blocks and fly spray for the Agriplex, as well as fuel cards for folks hauling animals in from evacuated areas and for evacuees,” he added.

He plans on leaving to Prince George by Wednesday evening, July 12.
