When he heard about the tragedy at Pines Bible Camp this summer, Dave Grantham knew he had to do something to help out.

Grantham, owner of M&M Meats in Castlegar, decided to round up some volunteers and put on a barbecue in front of his store.

"Everyone who had kids in this community knows someone that goes to the Pines Bible Camp," he said. "We decided to help out by having a fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. with all proceeds going to the camp."

Pines Bible Camp, which is near Grand Forks, was hit by a severe storm on July 20. An 11 year-old boy died in the event after a tree fell on his hut.

 

"I talked with the organizer there, and they're pleased that we're helping out," said Grantham. "It's such a great cause. We just want to help this great camp get back on their feet."
