Entrepreneurs’ Okanagan Chapter, on August 23, 2021, is urgently calling on entrepreneurs in the business community and people of the Okanagan to unite and help support those in need due to the horrendous impact of the fires affecting our communities. Many people in our communities have been displaced as a result of these wildfires. EO Okanagan is working in conjunction with emergency response organizations to provide these people with some of the various living requirements they are lacking. A list of supplies that are immediately needed is included, we ask that only items on this list be donated and we will accept all amounts varying from 1 unit to a skid or more of an item.

For your convenience, the EO Okanagan Chapter Members and their businesses have stepped up and made available drop-off centers throughout the Okanagan including Kelowna, Lake Country, Vernon, and Armstrong. We ask that you please do what you can in support of this effort and drop off goods at one of the below locations and we will make sure it gets to people in need. A sign will be posted at each of these centers directing you to the drop-off spot. We thank all who are able to support this immediate need.
