Volunteers no longer required to help set up group lodging


At this time, the City and Emergency Social Services (ESS) do not have the capacity to receive donations of goods, gift cards or food. We thank the community for their desire to help incoming evacuees and ask for patience while we work to coordinate all of the necessary systems. If you would like to donate to agencies that are helping to provide support to evacuees, we encourage you to donate to Salvation Army or Red Cross.


Vernon Emergency Social Services requesting community members that have ESS or EM experience and are willing to volunteer to contact ESSVolunteer@vernon.ca.
