The town of Smooth Rock Falls is seeking help from its residents to help evacuees feel at home.

The town is seeking help from the community when it comes to collecting belongings for Pikangikum First Nation evacuees.

Due to the rapid nature of the evacuation for the first nation community, most of the evacuees being housed in town are without quite a few of their belongings.

The town is asking residents to lend a helping hand by donating any clean, weather appropriate clothes or toys that are you able to donate.

The Legion in Smooth Rock Falls will be accepting these donations today between 1:00pm and 3:00pm and tomorrow at the same time.
