Support the Gospel Mission, stuff the bus

This Saturday Kelowna’s Gospel Mission is holding its annual “Stuff the Bus” in the Kelowna Walmart parking lot between 9 a.m and 3 p.m.

This Saturday Kelowna’s Gospel Mission is holding its annual “Stuff the Bus” in the Kelowna Walmart parking lot between 9 a.m and 3 p.m.

Walmart and the City of Kelowna provided a bus and the goal is to stuff it  with warm winter clothing to keep the hundreds of local homeless people safe this season.

“Although the weather is unseasonably warm right now, it still is very cold at night.  We have already seen an increase of people needing coats, blankets and other warm winter clothing,” said Randy Benson, Executive Director of Kelowna’s Gospel Mission.

“Our shelter is close to being full each night.  Bringing your used clothing to Stuff the Bus at Walmart this Saturday is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats, gloves and warm winter wear that you no longer use while helping the most vulnerable in our community.”

Kelowna’s Gospel Mission is collecting new or gently used blankets and warm winter clothing to distribute to the homeless,  people in need and Kelowna’s Gospel Mission thrift store.

As always, donations of cash or gift cards are always appreciated.
