A young mother in the Town of Bonnyville would like to say thank you to the Lakeland for their overwhelming kindness.
A recent fire in the Sportsman Trailer Park in Bonnyville left Pamela Couchie in a tough situation. She really didn’t know what she was going to do to fix her badly damaged trailer after a tent caught fire next door. Without insurance the struggle was real.
Lakeland Connect reached out to the Lakeland for financial support for the young mother and the response was overwhelming.
“I’m so thankful people helped out the way they did,” Couchie told Lakeland Connect while holding back tears. “I would love to say thank you to all of them for their help, it is greatly apricated, considering they didn’t have to help.”
Couchie says she understands that a lot of people are hurting financially right now with the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I know a lot of people are hurting and in need themselves, so I would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who has helped,” Couchie said.
In over 24 hours her prayers became a reality and she received $2000 between a few gift cards for Co-Op and cash donations.
“It should give me enough money to get some new siding and hopefully some stuff to seal off the roof of the house so no water leaks inside anymore,” Couchie said. “I’m so thankful people helped out the way they did.”
