Tyrone Bird and the Moosomin First Nation volunteer firefighters are true heroes, and they deserve our unwavering support. But that's not all that's happening. While wildfires ravage Alberta, northern BC, and parts of Saskatchewan, there are also communities in northern Ontario dealing with devastating flooding. Places like Kashechewan and Attawapiskat have been forced to evacuate, leaving hundreds of people, including children and youth, displaced from their homes. It's heart-wrenching, especially considering this is the second consecutive year they're facing spring flooding.
But here's where the power of community comes in. The Hamilton Christian Fellowship has stepped up to the plate, rallying a team of caring adults and youth to support a local church in providing daily activities for the affected kids. When Pastor Lisa reached out to us for toys and games, we wasted no time in taking action. Thanks to our incredible donors, we loaded up a van with games, puzzles, activity books, and toys, bringing smiles and hope to these resilient young hearts.
