Support is coming in from everywhere including the Williams Lake Stampeders for the Humboldt Broncos’ hockey team and community.
“We’ve actually sent a donation to the GoFundMe for the Humboldt Broncos,” says President Kelly Kohlen.
“It is a great tragedy and anyone that’s involved in hockey certainly feels for them and understands. I’ve driven on the bus a few times, quite a few times when I coached. But yeah you definitely know what they’re going through”.
The GoFundMe Campaign for the Humboldt Broncos as of Tuesday afternoon has raised more than $7.7 million dollars.
“We’ll get together with our executive and definitely will probably do something more,” says Kohlen.
Other local organizations and businesses that have pledged to support the campaign include the Bean Counter Bistro in Williams Lake that said they will be donating all of the purchases of regular sized coffee this week.
