Sunrise House Sends Out Call For Help to Re-Stock Pantry
Tonight, Grande Prairie's Sunrise House will be full.
The youth emergency shelter houses teens on a temporary basis -- kids with no place else to go.
Officials running the shelter say the pantry's pretty barren, and they're hoping the public can help get them restocked for winter.
Executive Director Tanya Wald says the past four months have been very busy.
"Through the summer we averaged roughly six per night-[between] six to eight [clients]. Moving into September, our numbers have already jumped. so, this week we've been siting at nine and ten [clients a night]."
Wald says the response they've received has been amazing each time they've asked for help.
The shelter needs non-parishable food, and ingredients for chili and stews as clients like to cook.
School lunch items like granola bars, as well as peanut butter and breakfast cereal are all needed as well.
Drop those items off at the shelter or call 780-539-3287 for a more complete list.
