The managers of Rona in Vernon and in Salmon Arm have something in common besides their work.
Rob Frank of Vernon and Gary Hoult from the Salmon Arm store drove to Sicamous two weeks ago with 5,400 bottles and 60 five-gallon jugs of water to aid in Sicamous flood relief efforts.
Members of the Red Cross team, who welcomed the donation, accepted the water at the reception centre, where displaced flood victims were sent.
“The fire chief, Mike Melnichuk, and the Red Cross team were very grateful to Rona for being able to contribute,” says Frank. “They couldn’t thank us enough.”
The Calgary Food Bank sent 15 pallets of food to Sicamous, delivered by the Calgary firm of Light Speed Logistics.
