When it rains, it pours! Literally!

Upstairs toilet overflowed and was running, which flooded: that bathroom, hallway, 2 single rooms, and then pouring through walls into shelter office and main floor bathroom, which had also clogged this morning and was already waiting on plumber. 1) Thanks to Supreme Restoration, who are on their way 2) Thanks to Paul Renaud and Unifor Skilled Trades Council, who found us plumbers and electrician to come out ASAP. 3) St Peter Maronite Catholic Church who, in the midst of our chaos, stopped by with a $1000 donation!
Centre closed 'til 4pm to tackle cleanup and luckily it's a beautiful weather day!

Welcome Centre Shelter for WomenSupreme Restoration in, doing assessment and crew out in an hour or so. Cant say this is the first time this has happened unfortunately- so hoping when all is said and done not too much ceiling has to come down to dry things out!

Welcome Centre Shelter for Womenlooks like we lose a bunch of drop ceiling tiles, section of drywall in ceiling of the office, and then lots of fans around, some of which they want running til Monday. Lose 2 beds over weekend if they become free (because rooms aren't usable), shelter office because fan is too loud and cant answer calls or use for intakes. Off to Costco to buy a new toilet....
