Forest Fire Evacuees - Evacuation Centre Volunteers Needed
« on: June 30, 2015, 11:37:01 PM »
forwarding on to the SaskGames community in case anyone in Regina has time to help out with recreation activities for evacuees...

Evacuation Centre Volunteers Needed

Due to the unprecedented level of fires and smoke in the north the Red Cross will be assisting with evacuees arriving in Regina as early as June 29 evening for two evacuation centres being set up at the University of Regina (200 people) and Evraz Place (up to 800 people). They are in dire need of volunteers to assist with set up and also to assist with personal support and recreation for evacuees during their time here. Volunteers are needed for assistance at all times of day and through the weekend.

Please consider volunteering. To do so you need to get a criminal record check done with the Regina Police Service and the Red Cross has arranged that this can be done on the spot when you go to get it.

If you plan to volunteer please send your availability over the next ten days as soon as possible to:

Cindy Fuchs CHRP
Provincial Director
Saskatchewan

Canadian Red Cross | Croix-Rouge canadienne
Western Zone
2050 Cornwall Street | Regina | Saskatchewan | CA | S4P 2K5

If you don't have the appropriate training, another thing that could really help is donations of summer attire and children's activities. Here's a short link:

Got a request for a game, check out this link right here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/t_shak I'd be more than glad to bring any of these out to play.
