Editor, 

We wish to thank all the donors to the can tab fund. We really appreciate all of the people who have dropped off can tabs at the thrift shop.

To date, we have purchased six or seven wheelchairs for Nicola Valley Health Care and Gillis House. It is hard to believe that a pickup load can purchase a wheelchair. 

We would also like to thank all of the people who have donated small soaps, shampoos, etc. for the Merritt Moms and Families. They are more than grateful for the donations.

Donations of can tabs, soap, etc. can be dropped off at the thrift shop. We wish to thank Wilf Klassen for his many can tabs trips to Kamloops.

We now have June McLeod to take this project over for us. Many thanks to June McLeod. June’s phone number is 250-378-5225, or you can drop your tabs or soaps off at the Merritt thrift shop.

Thank you for your support.

Ruth and Allan Steffens

Merritt, BC
