So many families and people have lost their homes and are displaced from the wildfire at Fort McMurray. There will be so much to rebuild and replace.
I first want to acknowledge all the firefighters and RCMP and first responders who are truly heroes!
It was heart wrenching watching the news, it must have been so incredibly horrifying for those people.
So many people wanted to help in whatever way they could. One thing that is for sure is that people from Alberta, and all across Canada, North America throughout the world have showed so much support and caring at this tragic time for the citizens and of the wildfire.
Individuals and businesses big and small have came together and donated money, supplies, clothing, toys, their time and so much more. People have offered up their homes to shelter people needing a place to stay. The giving is phenomenal.
Our community of Wetaskiwin and it’s citizens have been involved and it seems everyone is doing what they can. From lemonade stands to collections of goods for the victims, monetary donations and so much more. There has been such an outpouring of support.
This is a local business Wannasign in Wetaskiwin.
This business is locally owned and operated and they are making decals for vehicles FREE to supporters of Fort McMurray. One per vehicle. If you want more then one bring all your vehicles.
Yes, I went and got my decal the next day! Thank you so much Wannasign!
