Seeking Donations to Help Winnipeg Arson Victims

The outpouring of support for the family we’re told has been tremendous.  Thanks to everyone who donated.  If there are more specific items they require in the coming days, we’ll be sure to let everyone know!

On Saturday morning a fire caused by arson destroyed an apartment block in Winnipeg’s down town core.  (Click here to read the article in the Winnipeg Sun)

We’ve been told that the family of five was without insurance and in need of some of the basic necessities, in particular clothing.  As parents ourselves, we can’t even imagine how difficult this time must be for them.
In hopes of using our social reach we’ve contacted a few other florists around Winnipeg and set up donation locations for those who have some of these items available to spare for this family.
Items They Are In Most Need Of:

3 year old boy – size 6 (shirts and pants)

10 year old girl – size 10 in pants, Medium shirts

12 year old boy – size 16 in pants, Large shirts

Female – size XL

Male – size medium, jeans 32-32, shoe size 11.5

And toys for the kids.
If we get more information on their needs we’ll update this blog post.
