Hundreds of families — and their children — are living in Winnipeg hotels after spring flooding ruined their homes. Summer vacation has become a distant hope, as they wait for news of home.

Now, the University of Manitoba and University of Winnipeg are working together to create a camp for kids stranded in Winnipeg as a result of the floods.

APTN National News reporter Amy Stretten has the details.

Here’s how you can help:

The coalition is actively seeking public donations from organizations, corporations, and caring individuals to help fund summer activities for evacuee families.  Some examples of contributions include:

CASH: to offset the cost of camps and transportation, healthy snacks, and other supplies Tax receipts are available 

VOUCHERS/FREE TICKETS: for families to attend festivals, art, music or sporting events

GOODS-IN-KIND: donations such as arts and craft materials
