Saskatoon men filling semi with supplies for flood victims
Two men are hoping people in Saskatoon will help them fill a semi-trailer for Alberta's flood victims.
Both say the collection drive is the 'neighbourly' thing to do.
"We got in touch with the Calgary Food Bank and they told us, 'hey, here's the things we need,'" said Chavady. "So we're hoping Saskatoon can step up and help us fill this truck."
"You know we've already had a few people come out and bring stuff and I'm just overwhelmed with how much each person has brought," said Jerry Hallgrimson. "I thought you know, maybe one can or two but a lot of people have brought five or six things. And big flats of stuff. If that's a sign of things to come that's going to be really awesome."
By the end of the day, the Saskatoon men had collected 16 pallets of food, clothing and household items. That filled two thirds of the space in the truck, which was donated by the Yanke group of companies.
