Lytton and the surrounding area has experienced tragic losses from the fire. We are still trying to account for all our people, and countless family homes were lost. We are raising funds to support community members during this horrible emergency and to help us rebuild. On behalf of Lytton First Nation we have created this page and we are a qualified donee with Charity status and can provide tax receipts. All funds will directly benefit the Lytton community. We appreciate any support and prayers for our people.
Ey Swayel, Hello, My name is Melissa Charles. I’m from Chawathil First Nation. My kids father is Nolan Adams from the Lytton Band. His family is directly effected by this catastrophe and my heart breaks for them. My kids aunties, uncles, grandparents homes have all been destroyed by this fire.
All donations go directly to the families in need. Many people had to leave all of their belongings behind, most left and have no gas, clothes, emergency identification, and some even left with no shoes, etc..
My thoughts and prayers go to everyone involved 3 Any little bit helps. I'm so sorry to those who have lost their homes and important belongings. 引用：gofundme.com
My plan is to get the funds to the Village of Lytton, Lytton First Nation and/or the TNRD, as the Village and LFN see fit. Being that the offices for both these entities have burnt to the ground, it is understandable that it may be some time before it is worked out just where the funds will go. As this is an ever-changing situation, I have reached out to the Village of Lytton and Lytton First Nation to arrange the best way to get the funds where they need to be. People come first, and I know those in charge are currently busy ensuring evacuees are safe and trying to connect families who are separated. I will update as I know more. I am hoping to transfer the funds directly from GoFundMe to an account closer to Lytton once the Village and LFN (and any other parties deemed an interest by these local leaders) have been in touch.
Savage Society and our friends at 2 Rivers Remix Society is starting this fundraiser on behalf of folks in Lytton, BC, our friends, family, 2 legged and 4 legged, Elders and young ones, who have had to flee their homes and are experiencing much loss.
The funds will be used for both immediate needs and Re-establishment and kept aside for these purposes.
Hello my name is Shane Bolan from Hope B.C, I have a huge extended family on my Fathers side who live in Lytton B.C. This past January I lost my father John Donald Bolan , he died of a heart attack. My dads extended family jumped in to help with no questions asked, even with Covid 19 they offered their homes for us to gather for our father and I am so grateful to every single one of them, they are true hero’s to me and I love them all dearly.
Today some of them lost their homes in the Lytton fire including where we were gathering for my fathers funeral, and I know if my dad was here today he wouldn’t ask he would just push me along and tell me to help in anyway I can.
so I created this Go Fund me Page to help my Uncles Donny and Mike and all my extended family. Please give anything you can it goes along way.
My Name is Shoneena Lee Loss.
I am a Mother, Sister, Aunty, Friend and Lytton was my second home. I worked within the community on all levels of Support and Healing for over 10 years.
my work was there
my elders were there
my family was there
my future… was there.
And still is.
3 of my brothers have lost everything including their home in the wild fire in Lytton bc. Any support towards them managing through the next while would be greatly appreciated. As you probably know a huge portion of Lytton is gone and this means the majority of my family have also lost their homes. I will also be collecting donations of household items that I will deliver to lytton for whoever to take. If you’d like to make any donations towards that please message me.
