We’re making it as easy as possible for everyone to contribute”, Liddle said. “Donations can be made at both banking institutes in town,  as well as the Munipality of Wawa” Donations can also be made at the Wawa Disaster Relief Offic e in Wawa, at 96 Broadway.  The Committee expects to contact other Municipalities and major business across the province in hope to raise much needed funds.
