Fort McMurray Update #2

Our Beiseker Fire Truck and the accompanying firefighters have been spotted in the Fort McMurray area helping out.  Way to go guys!

For those wishing to donate items to help the evacuees they will be accepted at the AngelaRoxanne Photography studio.  The studio is next door to the hardware store on Main Street (230 6 Street).  They're open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. day.   They'll also have a special time to be open this Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

They'll need a couple of volunteers to help out down there.  If you can give them a couple of hours that would be great.

Right now the authorities are asking for specific items such as personal hygiene items, disposable diapers,  bottled water, granola bars, toilet paper, facial tissue, pillows (new), and blankets (new).

The Canadian Red Cross is accepting cash donations which are always greatly appreciated in disasters like this.  Money is easily transferred and outfits like the Red Cross can get huge buying power discounts!

If you know someone up there from Fort McMurray, text them, e-mail them or call them and let them know that all of Canada is beside them in their fight.
