Family thanks community for support

Cameron family grateful for the help they received after a fire left them without a home.

Dear Editor

On Jan. 16, my family lost our home and everything we owned in a house fire. We’ve had a number of generous community members donating clothes and items of all sorts to us. We really appreciate everything the community members have so kindly given us.

I’d really like to thank Deanna and Anita Dick for going out of their way to distribute and collect the donation jars around town. And thank you to the community for the $465 cash that you put into those jars. It’s greatly appreciated at this time.

A special thanks to Dean of New Wave Coolers, People’s Drug Mart, the South Cariboo Elizabeth Fry Society, Darlene Quesnel, Fields, Central Cafe, and the Lions Club. I’d also like to thank both the Cache Creek and Ashcroft Fire Departments, Cst. Christopher Harris, the Pittmans, the ambulance attendants, as well as the many other people who came to help us the night of the fire.

It’s been truly amazing to see how quickly the community came together to help someone in need. I can’t begin to express how appreciative our family is to the community.

Vannessa & Ray Cameron and family

Ashcroft
