Kim’s Angels return to fill ambulance for needy in Langley

The annual charity will see donors pack an ambulance with food, clothing, and baby supplies.

It’s time for Langley residents to Fill the Ambulance again.

The annual food and clothing drive for Kim’s Angels will be taking place on Dec. 15 and 16 at the Murrayville IGA, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

Organizer Kim Snow and her volunteers will be packing everything they can into an ambulance, for donation to the homeless and underprivileged.

“We’re looking for lots of protein,” said Snow.

Peanut butter, pasta, canned food, jam, salmon and tuna, soups, and granola bars are all very welcome, Snow said.

In addition, the drive will be accepting clothing and baby supplies. Diapers, baby food, and baby wipes are all needed, said Snow.

What not to bring? Bread and meat, as they can’t accept items that soon expire.

For those in a hurry, the IGA is helping out. The store will be offering $10 bags already filled with suitable items. Shoppers and those passing by can simply pay for one and carry it out to the ambulance.

Snow isn’t too worried about getting the ambulance filled up.

“We get it crammed every year,” she said.

The items in the vehicle will be distributed over the Christmas season and into the new year.

“We have 75 families we’re distributing the food to,” said Snow.

Items will help local working poor people and the homeless.

Some items will be given out through the free store at the Langley Vineyard Church, which does a great deal of outreach work in Langley.

It’s a highly local charity, Snow said.

“Everything, 100 per cent donated, stays in Langley,” she said.
