Time to give back for a Cranbrook volunteer


Cranbrook and area is stepping up to help one of its own.

“The community lost a passionate volunteer last week with the sudden passing of Rob Graham and his family is left without a husband and father,” said family friend Loree Duczek. “The Grahams have given selflessly to so many organizations, causes and individuals in this community over the past 10 years and this is our chance to help support Robyn and her two young children as they move forward from this loss.”

A trust fund has been established to help the family with its immediate financial needs and Duczek says any donation will be gratefully appreciated. Cheques made out to “The Family of Rob Graham” can be dropped off at Royal LePage East Kootenay Realty, Connect Church, BC Assessment or East Kootenay Community Credit Union.

“Whether its supporting local families or those abroad, Cranbrook truly shows its support. I really hope, whether it’s one dollar or one hundred dollars, that people will consider giving a donation to this Trust Fund as the last thing we want this family to have to worry about in the coming weeks and months is finances,” said Duczek.

Donations will be collected at the drop off locations for the next few months and 100% of the donations received will be given to the family.

For more information, you can contact Loree Duczek at 250-919-3489 or Jason Wheeldon at 250-420-2350.
