Today, the groups were at Kwantlen Cultural Centre unloading items from two 50-foot trailers.

“We got two huge trucks to unload,” said Cecelia Reekie, a member of the Haisla Nation and former Langley school trustee.

Volunteers will organize the donations and then have them delivered to families in Lytton.
