The Winter Season is coming!

To my understanding this will be a long snowy season, the first cold winter since the 1950’s. I am the family Support worker for the Lil’wat Wellness Centre located at the Mount Currie Band Office. With winter around the corner our community members are in need of winter gear.

We are looking for donations to start a Coat Exchange in the following areas:
Ullus Mount Currie Band Office,
Mount Currie Health Center (To Be Confirmed),
Xit’olacw Community School (To Be Confirmed),
Pemberton Signal Hill Elementary School (To Be Confirmed) and
Pemberton Secondary School (To Be Confirmed).

We are looking for winter boots, coats, pants, hats and gloves for all ages and genders.

If you or someone you know can make a donation please contact me or Tari Minniti by Phone: (604) 894 – 1663 or by Email: or

We are planning to have this organized and ready to go for October 21, 2010 at all locations. Any donations made, please wash before dropping off.
