Help Moncton's Harvest House accomplish their "Mission Possible" by raising $14,000 for winter heating oil

From now until Saturday at 6 p.m., Harvest House is seeking to raise $14,000 to buy winter heating oil for its shelter and residential facilities in Moncton. Moncton winters can be cold and snowy and they need to fill 20 tanks’ worth ($700 per tank) to keep everyone safe and warm.

Volunteers will be living and sleeping in a large cardboard storage container in the Champlain Place parking lot between Sears and Mikes Restaurant near the intersection (Bank of Montreal / A&W / Bulk Barn).

In addition to the $14,000 needed for heating, Harvest House is also asking for donations of food, blankets and clothing -- all of which can be dropped off at the event. Drop off your donations from now until Saturday at 6 p.m. and help keep the heat on at Harvest House this winter! For more information, click here.

This event is part of the Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce's Mission Possible initiative. Click here for some recent media coverage in the Moncton Times & Transcript.
