One resident of Kapuskasing has taken it upon himself to help with the wildfire relief efforts in northern Alberta.  On Friday morning Jim Rathbone made a Facebook post asking if anyone had a trailer for rent, in order to collect donations for victims of the wildfires raging in northern Alberta.  The status was shared over 300 times.  Before noon rolled around, Eastview Chevrolet and Bernie’s Carwash had found and paid for the trailer, by 4:00pm that trailer was one quarter of the way filled with donations.  By Saturday morning the trailer was completely filled with non-perishable food items, clothing, baby products and other items, including hundreds of dollars in donations.  Rathbone says the town of Kap never ceases to amaze him when it comes to supporting great causes.  Additionally, Canadian Tire Cochrane is donating $50 from ever wheel alignment sold in May to the Canadian Red Cross relief effort.
