Sikhs Donate Over a Million Dollar Including Dozens of Truck Loads of Aid to Fort Murray

Via: Global News:

EDMONTON – Five semi trucks carrying donated goods to help Fort McMurray wildfire evacuees arrived in Alberta’s capital Monday afternoon thanks to the efforts of B.C.’s Sikh community.

The goods were collected by the Lower Mainland Sikh Community before being loaded onto trucks Sunday and brought 1,139 kilometres from Surrey, B.C. to Edmonton. The community had already deployed four trucks to bring clothes, blankets and other supplies to Edmonton earlier this month and says in total, the nine trucks delivered over $1 million worth of goods to Alberta.
