  2. Leighann says:

    Just an idea but if you have a pair if rubber boots and a shovel head down yo one of the hard hit communities and offer your services. This is not covered by insurance and most families are digging themselves out of this mess on their own. Ask around somebody knows someone hard hit.

    I live in Downtown-West and lost my car in the Municipal Building parkade so my ability to travel is very restricted. I would really like to help out this week, as I cannot go to work anyways, but can’t travel so if there is anything I can do in Eau Claire, Chinatown, east-end of DT and beltline, Hillhurst/Sunnyside, etc please let me know. I’m able-bodied and ok with getting dirty.

    Feel free to contact me at sjrooseboom@gmail.com.

    Just curious if there are places where childcare is needed. Through the 2000 Days Early Child Development Network, we could try to set-up a team of childcare professionals and parents available to provide childcare where needed. Please let me know if this is something we can help with. Also, could collect donntoys, baby/children clothing, books etc..

    A family friend come down from Vegreville to help us with his two vac trucks. Rig Vac Inc. I believe he was working downtown this morning lending a hand. He’s contacted me asking of the status of discovery ridge condos that remain powerless, and waterless from the parkades still being flooded. Is there a number he can contact to put his trucks to use?

    His name is Alan Baxandall
    Company: Rig Vac Inc from Vegreville, AB
    Cell: 1-780-632-1406

    Hopefully we can use him!

    I have literally been brought to tears reading about all the amazing people who are offering their time and effort to help others. Although this flood has been disasterous to so many people, the kindness of so many is restoring “some” lost faith in mankind – in essence, a gift to all. I AM ONCE AGAIN, VERY PROUD TO BE A CALGARIAN!! BRAVO!!
