Dawson Creek sheltering the Philippines

“Storming Back: Shelter the Philippines” will take place at the Notre Dame Auditorium Saturday night beginning at 5:30 p.m. The evening will include a Filipino-style menu with main courses representing the four main areas that were hit by the typhoon. Dinner with be followed by music and dancing, and a chance to further donate to Shelterbox Canada, which provides emergency shelter to those made homeless by the disaster. 

A group of Rotarians have also joined forces and will be matching donations from the community up to $25,000. All donations to Shelterbox Canada are being matched by the federal government, which means a donation of $100 by a Dawson Creek resident will turn into $400 for the Philippines. 

As well as at the event, donations can be dropped off to the offices of Schilds Kurjata Kelly at 101-1136 103 Avenue in Dawson Creek. Tickets to Storming Back are $50.00 each and available at Tigers Stationers, Dawson Co-Op, Rips Shoe Re-Nu, and Northern Toy Box, or by contacting a Rotarian.
