Envision Financial hosting barbecue fundraiser at Chilliwack’s Sardis Park to help fire victims

Residents of the Park Ridge apartment building are struggling in the wake of the devastating fire.

Envision Financial is hosting a fundraiser Saturday to help victims of last weekend’s Park Ridge fire.

The event is a barbecue, running from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sardis Park (6898 School Lane).

Anyone wishing to help can also visit any Envision Financial branch and donate to the Park Ridge Fire Victims account.

The 60 unit apartment building on Stevenson Road was destroyed early Saturday morning. While the majority of the fire damage was in the top floor of the four-storey building where several units were completely gutted, there was significant water damage on flours one, two and three.

Between 80-100 residents of the building were displaced.

In the aftermath, a Facebook group and fundraising pages were set up to organize support. Several businesses offered gift cards, volunteers organized clothing drives and friends created GoFundMe accounts.

With many victims still trying to get back on their feet, Envision is hoping the Saturday fundraiser makes a difference.
