Communities Supporting Communities
The South West Coast of Newfoundland and Labrador are dealing with the terrible effects of Hurricane Fiona. Areas are devastated and communities are in shock. Our Mayor Justin Blackler, having lived and raised his family in the area, has very close ties to the communities affected. He and his family are reaching out to anyone who would like to help. Donations of clothes, cleaning supplies, pet supplies, personal hygiene, etc. can be dropped off to their home at 12 Woods Street, Twillingate. There are bins in the garage. These items will be transported to the west coast later in the week.
