Chilliwack fills a semi truck for fire victims of Fort Mac

A truck full of much needed supplies will be heading up to Alberta Friday night from Chilliwack's generous and caring residents

Chilliwack has responded to the Fort Mac disaster with heart.

A semi truck full of much needed supplies will be heading up to Alberta Friday night from Chilliwack for the victims of the Fort McMurray wildfires.

The truck contains everything from dog food, diapers, and diabetic needles, to baby formula, non-perishables and more.

Gord Van Laerhoven of Bulldog Transport said he arranged to have one of the company trucks parked in the Cottonwood Mall parking lot, and put the word out they were collecting for the fire victims.

The community is turning up in droves to help and donate.

The truck was half full by 4 p.m. and they’ll be in the parking lot near the old Target store until 9 p.m. on Thursday (tonight), and most of the day on Friday.

Already they can’t believe the great response and generosity Chilliwack has shown.

A second truck can be pulled into service if need be, said Van Laerhoven.
