Residents of a Kamloops retirement community have raised more than $7,000 to support those impacted by this year’s wildfires.
Berwick on the Park residents began fundraising after Kamloops became home to thousands of wildfire evacuees last month, according to Jacquie Biblow, the facility’s community relations manager.
Residents presented a cheque for $7,333 to the Canadian Red Cross intended to go toward both immediate relief and long-term recovery for those impacted by this year’s B.C. wildfires.
