WINNIPEG — With the boil-water advisory remaining in effect until at least Thursday, Siloam Mission has received a large bottled water donation.

Red River Co-op delivered two pallets of 144 cases of water each this morning — a total of 3,456 500ml bottles.

“Due to the generosity of the Red River and Federated Coops, as well as others who have already donated water, we are able to continue service to our community without any interruption,” the homeless shelter said in a release.

“We are grateful to Red River Co-op for helping us to replenish this critically necessary emergency supply.”
