Donations are being collected for residents displaced by Murrayville fire

An unknown number of people who live on the east side of Murray Green are expected to be out of their homes for some time

London Drugs Langley is stepping up to help those displaced by the massive fire after finding out three of their own staff live in the affected condo complex in Murrayville.

“Three of our own staff live in the building. I got one call and then another and another saying they couldn’t come to work in the morning because of the fire,” said Justin Martell, department manager of the Langley London Drugs store.

“We were pretty concerned, but everybody is safe.

“Now we just want to do what we can to help. Some people are going to be out of their homes for a long time.”

London Drugs at the 202 Street and 66 Avenue location is taking food and water donations. All of the checkouts are accepting cash donations that will go directly to those impacted.

At least three units in Murray Green suffered extensive water and smoke damage.

Kim Snow of Kimz Angels is able to pick up donations of furniture or good clothing.

She has some furniture and clothing already that she will be giving out, but could use more. Call Kim at 604-838-6579 or email kimzangels@hotmail.com.
