Trust account set up for donations to the man who lost his mobile home in a fire
A trust fund has been established for the public to make donations to Jim Angus, the Shawnigan Lake resident who lost virtually everything in a fire at his mobile home Monday.
Donations to the Jim Angus Trust Fund can be made directly at any Island Savings Credit Union branch, according to neighbour Kirsten Wahl, who set up the account.
Cheques can also be mailed to Island Savings, P.O. Box 100, #38-2720 Mill Bay Rd., Mill Bay, B.C. V0R 2P0.
If banking online, Wahl indicated a money transfer can be emailed to AngusFamilyFund@hotmail.com which will also go into the Jim Angus Trust Fund. If asked to create a password, Wahl suggested using "jimandjake".
"I've had one donation so far,'' Wahl said Thursday. "I actually just got the account fully set up yesterday at Island Savings.''
Besides monetary donations, household items are being sought for donation and Wahl has said she's willing to accept them at her place in the Shawnigan Mobile Home Park.
"They can actually drop them off at our place which is directly across from his place.''
Wahl added she's also looking into whether the Salvation Army in Mill Bay will accept donations.
Angus has been staying with neighbours before one of them stepped up in a big way.
"One of the neighbours he doesn't even know is bringing down a camper on the spot,'' said Wahl.
Enquires about donations can be directed to Wahl at 250-361-7396 or email to AngusFamilyFund@hotmail.com.
