More local businesses have jumped on board to help out the Ekklesia Millennium Society in Cranbrook, by donating a vehicle and mechanic expertise.

Spring Honda donated the 2003 Dodge Caravan to the society, while Minute Muffler helped them make sure it was fit to drive.

Ekklesia Millenium Society is a non-profit organization which focuses on helping those in need with meal programs, a shuttle service, counselling and more.

In early June, the society put out the call for donations as COVID-19 highlighted the need for their services, with some people unable to leave their homes or use public transit.

Volunteers are always needed to help out with a variety of tasks that the society performs. Information on volunteering and donating can be found on the Ekklesia Millenium Society website at www.ekklesiamillenniumsociety.com.
