Starting Nov. 20, the Kelowna Gospel Mission will begin its biggest Christmas Match campaign ever.

The goal is to raise $300,000 to support the essential services for people experiencing homelessness and poverty in the community.

Troy McKnight, director of resource development said between the soaring cost of living, the housing crisis and the West Kelowna and Kelowna wildfires, people in the city are struggling more than ever.

“I am so thankful for all of our match partners whose generosity is inspiring the greater Kelowna community to donate and see their impact multiplied during our week of giving,” said McKnight.

All donations will be used to provide food, shelter and support services for people in Kelowna who are experiencing acute need.

The Christmas Match campaign runs until Nov. 28, to participate go to www.kelownagospelmission.ca/hope or mail your donation to PO Box 22087 Capri PO Kelowna, BC V1Y 9N9.
