WFN Advisory Council Donates $1,000 to Temporary Homeless Shelter 


The Westbank First Nation (WFN) Advisory Council donated $1,000 to the United Church to assist them with a temporary Homeless Shelter on February 13, 2019, just in time for Valentines Day. The shelter is newly supported by the Provincial Government and operates in partnership with the City of West Kelowna and the West Kelowna Shelter Society. The funding allocated for the temporary shelter will come out of the council’s annual donation budget.
